C.E. McClain owned the Belmont Restaurant at 126 E. High Street, Lima, as of 1906 [source].
By 1908, J. A. Alexander was the proprietor of the Belmont Restaurant, as he referred to it in classified ads in the Lima News.
We see by the real photo postcard (RPPC) dated 1908, that the restaurant was also called the Belmont Dining Parlor, but the address is now 133 E. High Street.
By 1911, the classified ads read ''The NEW Belmont Dining Parlor", perhaps bigger, as it is now at 131-133 E High Street, Lima. ; with Geo. Dennis, Proprietor. [source].
No more history found on the restaurant, or these owners.
As per Ethel Alexander's notations:
From the left: J.A. Alexander and his wife Ethel, then "brother and sister-in-law" [presumably last named Alexander], then the cook, and then "Mr. A's Mother" "the rest is the help".
