Ms. Saunders,
Ma'am, in regard to your post seeking a photo or information about the Old Tilly Hotel in Shreveport, I have contacted the Spring Street Historical Musuem in Shreveport as well as the Shreve Memorial Library and LSU Shreveport Library Archives and Special Collections in an attempt to assist you. This attempt has been unsuccessful.

Additionally, I have a book "Shreveport In Vintage Postcards" by Eric J. Brock that after a thorough review has failed to reveal any photos or information on the Old Tilly Hotel in Shreveport.

The only other possibility I can think of is there might be something in microfilm that was published by a Shreveport newspaper but that would be like "looking for a neeedle in a haystack". Shreveport once had two newspapers -- "The Shreveport Times" and "The Shreveport Journal". While "The Shreveport Times" is still publishing I don't know how long it has been in existence. "The Shreveport Journal" newspaper was discontinued many years ago.

Best Regards,
Donny Dennis
