Today I went to the local drive in theatre flea market, looking for stock for my booth at the antique store. Found a neat 9 3/4" dinner plate by Sterling (M-9 = Oct. to Dec. 1978 date code) with a white bodied blue decoration with an image of the Vinoy Park Hotel (in St. Pete, Fl.) and a grassy looking border. When I searched the ID pages here I found an Alsonett Hotels plate with a similar border treatment. I searched google images and confirmed that this is indeed the Vinoy Park Hotel. The dealer had printed out an image also.
Does anyone have any more information?
Will try to post a photo later on today.
