Ranger Hotel

Owner: Roy Chamberlain

The reinforced concrete work is now up on the four stories of the new Ranger hotel, the wooden casings in which the columns were moulded and shaped have been removed, and preparations are now under way for closing the building in. The scaffolding and timbering which was in use on the several floors while the frame was going up have been cleared away, giving the structure a skeleton-like appearance at the present time. The transformation will come rapidly, once the closing-in process begins. The high tower which formerly stood on Third street front of the big building and which held the rigging for the hoisting of materials to the upper floors, has been removed to the center of the building. It has now been furnished with two elevators instead of one as originally used, its capacity being thereby doubled, the up car always carrying a load as the opposite elevator descends. The clearing of the debris from this large building has progressed with the smoothness which characterizes all the Beck & Sons operations, and the competition of the building may be looked forward to in the proper time.

Have you? Have you ever been in the lobby of the RANGER HOTEL?

It is undoubtedly true that its fine appointments are more familiar to tourists and traveling business men than to Lusk's home-folks.

Even if you don't need a room, why not step in and see one of Lusk's show places. The RANGER is a hotel to be proud of!

Bob Darrow and Harry Sager are regularly on the staff of folks it takes to operate a busy hotel. And Roy Chamberlain's RANGER is a very busy hotel indeed.
