Hotel Fife Owney tag

Description:

The most famous of Owney’s travels was his trip around the world in the late summer and fall of 1895. That trip began and ended in Tacoma, Washington, and it may have been during one of those times that he received this hotel key tag from that city’s Fife hotel. The hotel was built by William H. Fife, a businessman who had also served for eight years as the postmaster of the city of Tacoma.
