This lovely vintage postcard has not been postally used. The Queen’s Crown had a featured ad in The Evening Independent in 1957, found here on Google News.

Looking at Google Street, it’s possible that what the original lobby was still exists. The building, now listed as a single family residence, was built in 1956. However, you can sort of see the old wing of apartments/motel rooms from this angle:

or this angle here:

It would seem to be still used as apartments, but I can’t really find any details on it. Also, no data on either Ruth or Dave Elwood.
