1910 "Hotel Oddities"

Researching a little history for The Actors Fund, I was digging through The New York Times archives, when I found this little gem tacked on to the scan of one of the stories. I don't know what's best: the shocking news of women smoking at the Waldorf-Astoria, the Mexican bird escape at the Gotham, or the use of pneumatic tubes and electric dumbwaiters to serve a "quick lunch" at the St. Regis.
