Hotel Royal

Hotel Royal, 1905

This Hotel Royal ad is a classic example of early 20th-century signage; simple, descriptive, to the point. The "Alaska Plumbing & Heating Co." sign was uncovered when the old Corno's building was demolished in 2006. The building now houses Montage restaurant under the Morrison Bridge. This view is from SE 3rd at Alder.
