This is one of our most intriguing Friday Flashbacks ever. It’s a great 1920s-era photo. It shows a place I’ve never heard of — and one I sure can’t identify.
The caption says “Flambeau Tea Room.” There’s another word after “Flambeau,” but I can’t make it out. It might be “Salon,” or it might be another name. Click on or hover over the photo in case your eyes are better than mine.
At first glance, the building on the left resembles the Westport Country Playhouse. The one on the right looks like what’s now Positano restaurant.
But in the ’20s, the current Playhouse was a tannery that had fallen into disuse. And if you look closely, you’ll see a tall white structure behind the building on the right.
So who was Flambeau? What was his or her tea room? And where was it? If you know, click “Comments” below.
Meanwhile: It sure looks like an interesting place!
