The Tivoli Series
The Tivoli Hotel,
the Grande Dame of the Riviera of the South, no longer exists.
This page showcases the photographs taken shortly before the Tivoli was torn down by the wrecking ball. They are among my most favorite photographs because they epitomize the very soul of this once magnificent building. I wish I had known The Tivoli Hotel in its time of glory. Even in its state of total decline, all you had to do was close your eyes, conjure the sounds of an orchestra playing in the Grand Ballroom and your mind would take you back in time where your imagination takes over and you are actually there, dancing to the music, laughing and having a grand time.
To the ghosts of the Tivoli Past: You are sorely missed.

"The Tivoli Hotel was
one of the few remaining Grande Dame resorts of the 1920s, built
during a time when the Mississippi Gulf Coast was known as the American
Riviera. The hotel was featured as an apartment hotel with 64 guest
rooms on four floors. The first floor contained a striking barrel-vaulted
lobby with a magnificent ballroom to one side and the large dining
room to the other." The ballroom could be viewed from an open
mezzanine over a short wrought iron rail. The Mezzanine contained
excellent architectural features, some of which are pictured in
Nix's photographs. From that vantage point, one could see elegant
chandeliers hung by long chains from a two-story tall ceiling.
