The Manufacturers’ Record of Aug. 6, 1908, noted Leitner as architect for a hotel in Rocky Mount for T. L. Bland and R.H. Ricks. By 1912, the Sanborn Insurance Map of Rocky Mount depicted the large brick hotel on Hammond St. The postcard shows the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Passenger Depot after the third story was added, and the Ricks Hotel is on the right.
