|The pictures show a view of all (3) Small Old Wentworth By The Sea New Hampshire Hotel Items in this lot. This is a historic hotel resort that was the location of the 1905 peace treaty of the Russian Japanese War. For years the hotel had been threatened by demolition because of disrepair and lack of funding for restoration. The hotel resort was finally purchased, restored and reopened again in 2003. Here are some words from their website:
''Poised high atop a bluff overlooking the ocean and river below, the historic Wentworth by the Sea once again offers its guests a bygone lifestyle of grandeur and elegance.''
''Located on New Castle Island, NH, just an hour north of Boston, the Wentworth opened in 1874 with much fanfare. It instantly became a favorite destination for socialites, film stars, and presidents, including delegates to the historic 1905 peace talks that ended the Russo-Japanese War. The island resort blends the best of the past with the finest of the future.''
''Today's spectacular restoration and new construction brings back the hotel's glamour as it officially becomes "Wentworth by the Sea, A Marriott Hotel and Spa" in 2003.''
The first item in this lot is a 1970 color photograph slide. It is of the entryway with passengers boarding a Massachusetts bus. The sign on the bus reads ''QUINCY POINT CONG. CHURCH''. The slide is marked and dated:
