Product Description

This menu art is from a souvenir miniature menu post card dated May 22nd 1956.

The St Catherine Hotel in Avalon dates from 1918, when the Bannings built it on the site of their former family home, destroyed by fire in 1915. The hotel had a private beach, a 1,200-seat dining room, and was favored by Hollywood celebrities, who appreciated being able to use the private pier to come and go with discretion.

The hotel was shut down in 1941: that same year WW2 forced the end of leisure traffic to the island, and the hotel and other facilities were taken over by the Merchant Marines for training.

The hotel reopened in 1952 with new owners but it was not in the greatest shape and rooms without private bathrooms were not popular. 

Parts of the hotel were repurposed, but it was finally demolished in 1966.
