Lucie, whose husband, N.W., had passed away the previous May, stayed at the Pennsylvania Hotel [now Courtyard Marriott], an historic hotel built in 1925.
The younger generation rented an economy apartment closer to the beach -- possibly Madeira Beach where the 1952 pictures were taken.
In the 1920s the Ballantynes owned property in the Daytona Beach area, but preferred visiting Florida's Gulf Coast.
