Neon Returns to Vancouver Downtown
I am so happy that neon signs are starting to come back to Vancouver. There is a new sign at the Pennsylvania Hotel, built in 1908 as the Woods Hotel and newly restored by the Portland Hotel Society for single room occupancy.
Vancouver used to be a notable centre for neon signage, but a lot of it was taken down by city officials who felt that it was an eyesore. I hope 2009 brings more cool old restored hotels and vintage neon!
Here is a longer article by Frances Bula about the sign and the history of the building.
