Hotel Style: The Divine Lorraine Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
A historic piece of the Civil Rights Movement in Philadelphia, The Divine Lorraine Hotel was once one of the premiere establishments in North Philly. Now, as you can see above, it stands as a shell of its former self, and a representation of a time lost. Obviously, Clutter didn't stay at The Divine Lorraine, but check out the beautiful imagery and write-up The Kingston Lounge did on The DLH...remarkable images (an example below) and a profound history of the first racially desegregated hotel of its kind in Philly. Last year, The Lorraine was completed gutted so maybe some good things are on the horizon (?). Powerful stuff.
