Squint Shot 033111

Over the past couple of years, I have noticed various buildings in and around Fowlerville where a former door or window have been bricked in -- something I like to call 'doorways to nowhere.' I thought I had pretty much searched them all out but the other day I noticed the second floor of the front of the old hotel on South Grand Avenue. From the look of the bricks' smoothness, it would appear this might have been a door at one time on the second floor. Out of curiosity, I dug up a picture from circa 1942 when this old building was known at Hotel Sumner. There's a balcony across the front of the building. Could that be when the door was used? Does anyone remember when this was Hotel Sumner?
