Owned by one of Missoula’s oldest Italian families, D’Orazi’s Bar, grocery store and hotel were on the SE corner of Woody and Alder in a building that once housed the luxurious Europe Hotel. One of the D’Orazi daughters married former Italian P.O.W., Alfredo Cipalatto. Together the two owned and ran The Broadway Market.
The photo is from 1968. The hotel and the neighboring shanties were torn down around 1970.
