First built in 1905 to be used as apartments and business rooms for Frank O. Wells' tool business in Greenfield, Massachusetts, the Weldon Hotel soon was changed into a hotel. The first all-concrete hotel in New England, it was one of the nicest and most expensive hotels in the area. This post card, the photograph taken between 1905 and 1908, shows a summer view. On the street, 3 people enjoy a ride in one of the new horseless carriages.
