A Glimpse of Vintage Gainesville

I snapped these on a quick trip to Gainesville last weekend.  We passed on the Florida Motel (“…affordable rooms in a great location”) and the Palomino Pool Room was likewise not on our itinerary.  We did, however, see a great play at the historic Hippodrome Theater. Photos taken 3/9/14.

This Pontiac Sales and Service "ghost sign" is on the side of what is now the Palomino night club in downtown Gainesville.

The Florida Motel is on State Road 441 on Gainesville’s southside.
