The Elite Court and Motel - Before and After

These undated cards reflect the changing size of Amarillo, Texas. The older card marks the city's population at 80,000. The newer card bumps the population up to over 100,000. Both cards, however, are clear about their preferred (or idealized) demographic. After all, this place isn't a Route 66 flop-house. This motel is "where elite tourists gather for ultra-modern accommodations." Today I can find no record of Elite's fate. If you know, please leave a comment.
