BEL AIR, Sacramento CA

There’s a tale here. The owner-manager, according to the card, is the brackishly named “Evelyn Sourwine.” The message, handwritten in spindly old-lady lettering on the back of the card, says “Anyone interested in buying my motel please write to me at the above address for more information. Evelyn Sourwine.”

Not, perhaps, the most professional business solicitation; one hopes it worked for her.
