The Owl’s Studio

In the early 1930s The Owl’s Studio was located in Morgan’s Hall, a building that stood for many years at 418 Market Street. I know little else about the place. The band mentioned below was out of Trenton NJ. The Hotel Hildebrecht, pictured below, was a popular spot in Trenton, and on the outside appears similar to Camden’s Walt Whitman Hotel. Sadly it met a similar fate, and was razed in the 1980s.
