SS - Sherman House, Tomah, Wisconsin

This is a fine picture of food, but it is not my idea of "fine food."

This postcard is probably from sometime during the 1945-1951 period. The card has a one cent stampbox (postage increased to two cents in 1952). A 1912 History of Monroe County, Wisconsin called the Sherman House "today a modern little hotel in every particular." A new modern version of the Sherman House and a new VA hospital were in the planning stages in 1945 (Boom Times Face Tomah--VA Hospital Under Way). The Sherman House apparently closed a long time ago.

  1. Well, it doesn't look like fine food, but if the fish is excellent, then who cares about the rest. We have a place like that here. The proprietors are from Wisconsin and they have Walleye and other fish flown in to Portland, Oregon. It's sort of a vegetable-free meal, but that fish is so good. Anyway, this postcard makes me think of their restaurant.
