"The Las Palmas Tourist Court was located in Laredo, Texas on San Bernardo Avenue, at the junction of US Highway 81-83 and Highway 202. The court was built in the Hacienda style which captured the imagination of both travelers and enterprising business people during the late 1930s and early 1940s. One of the landmarks the Las Palmas used was extremely tall flag poles in front of the court which proudly flew the flag of the state of Texas and also a pennant-shaped flag with the name of the court." One panel offers detailed information about Las Palmas Court, one panel offers a street map of the area around Las Palmas Court, and three panels offer information on Laredo, visiting Mexico, etc. Shaded blue photographs of the exterior of the hotel and the interior rooms. Light soiling. Very good.
