The Jefferson Hotel
A few weeks back my wife treated me to a night at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond. Breathtaking place for a wedding photo shoot. My father asked if they still had the alligators. Apparently, in the old days, people traveling north to home on their way back from Florida would store their pet alligators in the pond of the atrium in this huge hotel. He remembers well walking with his mother to go visit them on a Sunday trip into Richmond.
The alligators are long gone, however, the ladies of the Red Hat club were meeting as we passed through the main hall.
