signs: Hotel Touraine

Hotel Touraine

Named ultimately for a region in France, it was a popular hotel name, with examples from Paris, France to Buffalo, NY to here in Oakland. This sign is in bad shape, but searching for history on it, I came across pictures of another sign on the other side of the building. It's also in bad shape, but considerably better than this one.
