Alms Hotel

 


  The Alms Hotel located on the northwest corner of Victory Parkway and E. McMillan St. was opened in 1891. Frederick Alms built the hotel across the street from his home. You can partially see his house on the right side of the first two cards below. The original structure can be seen in the first eight cards.

   The larger more modern buildings seen in the remainder of these cards were built in 1925. Frederick Alms along with William Doepke started the Alms & Doepke department store which can be seen on the canal page. For many years WKRC radio broadcast from studios located in this building, the towers can be seen on top of these cards.

   The 5 photographs below is a small sample of the WKRC studios during their stay in the Alms Hotel. In 1941 the Quiz Bowl program was voted the nation's outstanding studio sports program which was presented by The Sporting News. This was a quiz program. The size of the audience was too large for any normal radio studio and so it was held in the Alms Hotel's Club Village.
