signs: Fairview Motel
I'm always happy when I find an interesting sign in Oakland that I didn't know about. Not that I'm running out of signs to photograph; I've still got a backlog of signs to visit and some I've already photographed but not posted about. In any event, I noticed this sign out of the corner of my eye as I was heading north/west on MacArthur. It turns out I'd seen the front many times over the years, as it's next to the on-ramp from MacArthur onto eastbound I-580 at Fairmount. But the front is covered with a plastic marquee, below a newer plastic sign.
