·  San Diego

·  San Diego Judicial Townsh..., Councilmanic District 6

 

The first line (as best as I can read it) says:

The following persons enumerated in the El Cortez Hotel block #3558.

 

My possible relatives and the whole page says hotel guest.   What does that mean?

 

I looked at Wikipedia and it says apartment-hotel.   Would that be similar to condominiums today?

 

Thank you,   Trudy Barch,  Florida
