Evergreen Gardens Collinsville Illinois
This vintage 1945 postcard gives us a good look at the Evergreen Gardens building. This fine establishment was known as an upscale hotel-resort-casino-nightclub, with ties to local gangster Buster Wortman, before it became home to Brooks Foods and the G.S. Suppiger Company in 1952.
The back of this postcard reads: "Largest and finest night club in the middle west. Five spacious dining rooms for banquet, wedding parties, etc. Copyright 1945 H.C. Schnell, Collinsville, Ill."
