Released in October by Arcadia Publishing, local history enthusiast Davd L. Peché’s new book San Antonio’s Historic Hotels turns back the clock to build a vintage portrait of life and lodging in the Alamo City. A visual companion to the review we published this week, this slideshow combines several of the book’s most intriguing images — from an illustration of Teddy Roosevelt recruiting his Rough Riders in the Menger Hotel bar circa 1898 to the Fairmount’s Guinness World Record-setting relocation in 1985.
