Above: Vintage Postcard featuring the Mayo Hotel. The 600 room hotel was the tallest building in Oklahoma when it was built in 1925.
Above: Vintage Postcard featuring the lobby of the Mayo Hotel. The hotel is located in Tulsa's historic Downtown Deco District.
Above: Vintage Postcard featuring the Marine Grill inside the Mayo Hotel. Definitely a later remodel, but we love the fun, bright colors and Streamline Deco feel. We would love to someday do a reproduction painting of the Art Deco mural on the back wall if we can find a better photo of it!
Above: We were excited to acquire this photo for we have yet to see this image shared anywhere else. However, searching the National Archives we found a video with this exact background made in 1918 for the Ford Motor Company. The video "Will Rogers Says" shows Will Rogers doing lasso tricks, along with some humorous quips. You can find the video #2 here... https://catalog.archives.gov/id/91355
