The back of the Baker Hotel is just as run down as the front.

It used to be a glorious place, famous far and wide for the healing waters, but those days are long gone. Or, as the song “Mineral Wells” says:

There’d be no healing return to the past;
the fountain of youth had dried up.

  2. Decayed elegance
    still contains subtle beauty
    patina of time.
