Fairfield 8

Fairfield Hotel: 1911

This "Fairfield 8" sign, like the Fairfield Hotel itself, has seen better days. Mostly out of reach of taggers, the ad nonetheless shows the effects of years of exposure to the elements. I assume the "8" refers to the price of a night's lodging years ago.

Now called "Fairfield on Stark," the building is a city-owned subsidized housing facility. See this sign from the corner of SW 12th and Stark.
