The old North Shore


The North Shore Motor Hotel, Coeur d'Alene, 1970s/post card

The first place I worked in Idaho (in the fall of 1973) is barely visible toward the top center of this post card: The Cloud 9 restaurant, of which you can sort of make the name in lights. The North Shore Motor Hotel, to which it was attached, was a smaller facility than the current Resort (which was built in the mid-80s), but was for its era a nice place to stay and a solid commercial anchor on the west end of Coeur d'Alene.

If you too have some back history in North Idaho, you'll want to check out the picture site Remember the Roxy, which is loaded with great images from decades past.

Hat tip to Dave Oliveria at Huckleberries, for drawing attention to the site.
