    Brian…you do great work, sir! Thanks a bunch for including this pic of The “New” Alma Hotel. My father, Braswell Deen, Sr., built this and operated very successfully, until WWII broke out, and gas-rationing was the order of the day….virtually eliminating “traveling salesmen”. I enjoy your photos and look forward to them on the website. Thanks again…rd
