Description

"The Driskill Hotel. 604 Brazos Street, Austin, Texas. Built in 1886.
The Driskill Hotel is the oldest operating hotel in Austin. It was conceived and funded (at a cost of $400,000) by Col. Jesse Driskill, a cattle baron, who aimed to build "the finest hotel south of St. Louis." The hotel is rumored to have been built with an entrance just for women so as to avoid the rough language used by the cattlemen in the lobby.
A night, including meals, in The Driskill upon opening would have run $2.50 to $5.00, an unheard of sum for the location at the time."

Little Histories aims to tell you the story behind the architecture that surrounds us. Each card is carefully illustrated to show you the beauty of a building and tell the story of where it is, what it is, and what it has been.

These cards are perfect to collect and share with your friends, family, and acquaintances that you kind of like (because everyone deserves a nice card now and then.)

Product Specifications:
- Folded A2 (4.25" x 5.5") Greeting Card
- Blank Interior
- Includes Matching Envelope
- Framing Option includes Black Ikea Ribba Frame (6''x8'', 1.25'' depth) with hanging hooks on back
