This view (c.1920) of one of the semi-outdoor rooms at The Weldon Hotel in Greenfield, Massachusetts, shows the wicker rocking chairs and the potted plants placed there for the enjoyment of the guests. First built in 1905 to be used as business rooms and apartments, the concrete hotel soon was remade to be a hotel. It was one of the nicest and most expensive hotels in the area and quickly became a very popular winter vacation place to go as well as a summer tourist stopover.
