Last month I saw a listing come up on Ebay for a 1936 Monroe Telephone directory. I instantly bought it! It came in a few days before the new year and I was blown away by one ad in the middle for the Three Mile Inn:
I have never seen an interior shot of the Three Mile Inn! I have written about it before. I wonder if that tile looking area in the middle is the infamous glass dance floor? WOW! This building is now known as the Waterfront Grill.
I have donated the phone book to the Ouachita Parish Public Library’s Special Collections department so future researchers can enjoy it! It is now digitized here: https://www.louisianadigitallibrary.org/islandora/object/oplib-orv%3A131 .
