I saw these items on eBay and thought they were interesting.

You could have stayed here at the Palms Motel after a night at the Tiki Supper Club

I received the below message from LGZ who found this thread while doing some research. I think it's interesting enough to share. Thank you LGZ for sending it to me.

Just found your post of this postcard etc... from Palms Motel in Mobile Ala which I found from a search I did. Thanks for posting it! I thought you might be interested to know a fascinating bit of trivia about this place I found connected to the JFK assassination during my research on the topic. Lee Harvey Oswald and his wife Marina stayed here on 7/27/63 when they were brought to Mobile by his cousin, Eugene John Murrett, so Oswald could speak at Spring Hill College (in Mobile) where Murrett was a student. His speech was about his life in Russia apparently. Here is the FBI report about his visit which detailed his stay at the Palms Motel.


Interesting bit of history. If walls could talk, what stories they could tell.


They'd say "Hey, a patsy slept here." :wink:
