Hi guys, it's Martin Turnbull here. I thought I'd weigh in on this. When I first found this photo (on Facebook, I think) I was excited that I'd found a "new" photo of the hotel where I've set my novels. I knew it was the one used on the cover of Sheilah Graham's book but I wasn't sure how the photographer got a shot like that. Then I found that a model existed of the place (have you seen the video of it?) and figured that it must have been the same shot. I tried to track down who took it, and when, but I never got anywhere.
