Hotel Room Key Tokens

Hotel Seagrave Owney tag

Description:

Owney probably received this hotel key check token from Arthur A. Seagrave or one of his employees. Sometime in 1889-1890, Seagrave built a hotel on the corner of Virginia and 3rd Avenue in Seattle, Washington, naming it after himself. Owney was either a regular or popular guest at the hotel, for he received not one, but two hotel key check tokens from the Seagrave, both for room #12. While it is not known when Owney received this token, Arthur Seagrave opened a new hotel, the Occidental, sometime before 1893.
