This fine establishment is really not in San Juan -- it's in Pennsylvannia. Certainly a fine homage to the Latin tropics, we might wonder nevertheless why this place was built in Amish country, sombrero mucho grande and all. The back marks the location on "U. S. 22, Penn Highway 6 miles east of Pittsburgh 21, Pa., at Turnpike Entrance. " And it case it wasn't clear from the picture, it goes on to describe the hotel as "A Luxurious Hotel -- the finest accomodations at the Pittsburgh Turnpike Entrance." My guess is that it was the only hotel at the Pittsburgh Turnpike Entrance.
