Memorabilia Monday: Cocktail Fork

fork-1

This is a cocktail fork from the Lamar Hotel. The once-popular hotel closed in June 1983. While we do not have a collection pertaining to the hotel, we do have collections connected to some of the men who frequented it, more specifically Suite 8-F. Those men include Jesse H. Jones, George and Herman Brown, Gus Wortham, James Abercrombie, and James A. Elkins, Sr.
