Ah, a sheik fashion show in the 1920s at the Mira Mar Hotel. It appears that the ladies are assembling to do their ‘runway’ moment in my courtyard. My fashionable room behind them was a popular venue that was used frequently for events. Your challenge is to name this splendid room. Who am I?



Your award this week is the book, John Hamilton Gillespie - The Scot Who Saved Sarasota by Jeff LaHurd. The Friend's of the Sarasota County History Center generously provided this prize. Please consider becoming a member of the Friends; they have some exciting programs coming up soon. Visit them here.

If you would like to be a sponsor of our "Where Am I?" quiz, please call us at (941) 951-7727. It only cost $25 per week for us to set up your ad, and then you only have to provide a prize for the winner. What could be easier?

Winner: No one, Answer: The Palm Room (at the Mira Mar Hotel)
