That's a lovely sun room and a funny postcard message. Does the hotel still exist?

Hi Hilda.
Unfortunately the Huntington was torn down. It was one of St Pete's largest hotels at the time (including the Vinoy and the Soreno). Where it once stood now is a block of new condominiums.

Thanks for the comments!
