I’m not familiar with the history of the various incarnations of the Saratoga, but I assume this establishment on Superior Street in the old “Bowery” district is a forerunner of today’s Club Saratoga in Canal Park. All the buildings in the photo above were razed during the Gateway redevelopment project in the mid-1960s; is that when the Saratoga moved to its present location? Post a comment if you know.
The other businesses on the block, heading east (left) from the Saratoga, are Dove Clothing and Shoes, Zien’s Grill, Green’s Crystal Terrace nightclub, the 5th Avenue Hotel and the Spalding Hotel.
Here is another view from the same day, from a different angle:
