Brownsville Should be Made
Center For Tourist Traffic
"Brownsville could he mad- the center of touri t traffic in the South, |
and it could he if we had hotel accommodations." was the tatement made
i last, night by VV. K. MePavitt of MePavitt Bros. I
“The growth of tin- city and the volume of improvements made in the 1
past three or four year.- have been heavy, hut they are only a -.tart on the
development which would follow if we can attract the tourist traffic to this
city. The stream of tourist travel h;«v already turned this way, l.nt we 1
cannot expect it to attain f ill volume unless we supply he accommodations
i tin touri-ts demand.
"’Ihe most important proposition- before the city today is the erection
of a tourist hotel one that would be a credit to the city; that would sup
ply ample accommodations for all comers, and ! believe' that it would be
merely th> forerunner for additional hotels which would be necessary to
care for the* touri-ts. home-seekers and investors Mich a hotel would attract
to this city.
" Brownsville has made wonderful progress ir recent years, but we
have reached the point where we moot ex-pert to progress much further
unless this important essential to cit" development is taken care of."
