    Sure, had a girlfriend that worked there for while, it relied on plant workers business. No pictures, but hope to find some of my dad's old hotel in this book, maybe some Studebaker stuff too. The Savoy Hotel was bult in the late 1800's, torn down, in the late 40's.

      No pictures, but fond and frightening memories.

      When Cousin George Krem and I were spending days in South Bend doing all things Studebaker in the summers of 1961-1962-1963, we watched in horror as many of Studebaker's assembly line workers filed across the street at high noon and, we assumed, drank their lunch at The Lark Inn. [:0]

      We were mortified at the thought of their returning to the assembly lines half-drunk to resume assembling Studebakers as best they could on a hot summer's afternoon. [}]BP

        Mr. Palma; NOW we can understand why Studebaker's panel gaps weren't as good as they could've been!! [:0]
