Here we area at 3109 Bristol Hi-way in the late 40s or early 50s.  Published by Fred W. Stanley, Johnson City, Tenn. It’s a Dextone “Made Direct from Kodachrome and Ansco Color By Dexter Press, Inc. West Nyack, N.J.”  Postally unused.

On the back:

MODEL CITY MOTEL
New and Strictly Modern
Located 1 1/2 miles from downtown Kingsport, Tenn. on U.S. Hi-way 11-W.  Away from the city noise. For reservations, phone 4309 or write Model City Motel, 3109 Bristol Hi-way, Kingsport, Tenn.  Owned and operated by Charlie Chase and James McAinch.

(The “McAinch” is a typo.  It should be “McAninch”.  In 1959 Charlie Chase and Bobby McAninch were listed as the owners of this bide-a-wee)
