Vintage Assiniboia Inn Postcard

I recently came across another vintage postcard find, this one of the Assiniboia Hotel (later the Assiniboia Inn) in downtown Medicine Hat, Alberta. The postcard shows the hotel in its prime during the 1960s. Notice the orange paint on the neon sign and the lettering along the lower overhang. These were details that were later changed. Also, notice the direction the vehicles are parked.  This was before the street became one way. With the state of the Assiniboia today, there's something special about adding a postcard to my collection from when it was thriving.
