Re: “The Silver Horseshoe Motel - Summer Avenue

Interesting that you have these pics. Unfortunately, I have very few pics from 20+ years ago, except family pics (I didn't really have the foresight to take pics of landmarks, etc. as I didn't understand their importance then). This looks like a fairly typical 1950s-style motor lodge, which likely turned rancid at some point in the 70s or 80s (ie became a "notel" with drug and/or prostitution issues). We certainly know the Admiral Benbow on Summer became one. Looking at it again, the Silver Horseshoe kind of reminds me of Leahy's Trailer Park, another place that should have seen the wrecking ball years ago.
