Vintage postcard of the Rogerson Hotel in Twin Falls ID. Thanks to the group of volunteers who worked tirelessly on this project! So much wonderful salvage was removed from this building for use in the future by others; before it’s upcoming demolition.

One of the items recovered: A fire hose (inspection tag reads 1947) with the casing and original brackets. The fire hose appears to not have been used during the 1964 fire that destroyed the third floor of the hotel, as it remains intact!
