Exploring Albany's inglorious past and dubious future

Before it was the Elbo Room


Pre-Elbo Room, 170 Delaware Avenue. The address was home to Diamond Taxi, owned by J.J. Callahan, from 1931-a1933 and possibly beyond. It was Hall’s from 1941-1954 (Halls featured singing waiters!), then Brown’s Inn from 1955-1962, when the Elbo Room opened.
