Lafayette Hotel

Our Friday photos is Fogel's at 815 & 817 Front Street. It was also home to the Lafeyette Hotel, which proudly boasted Georgetown's first private telephone exchange in April 1934. It was installed by A.G. Trenholm and connected with the 21 hotel rooms. The hotel also proudly boasted of a Downyflake Doughnut machine in their dining room, which could turn out 120 dozen doughnuts in an hour! by Connie Jayroe-Owens
