Edgewater Beach Hotel Dishes in Use
Okay, this isn't a terribly interesting picture, I know. The caption reads, "Chicago socialite Mrs. Berta Baurf adjusting her earring while talking with Everett Dirksen, candidate for U. S. Senator, at a luncheon in the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago, October 13, 1950."
But if you're like me, and collect old dishes and glassware from the Edgewater Beach Hotel, you can't help but notice what they're eating from. This is the only photo I've seen that has a close up of the dishes in use.
