This ghost signage advertises "steam heat, hot & cold water, telephone and elevator." A throwback to the time when such amenities meant luxor.

Looking for a good hotel to stay at at a reasonable price? How about $2.00 to $4.00 per week and meals at 35cents? The New York Hotel was such a place... in Stockton.

The Hotel Berry still features moderate rates. But the real question is, just who is this guy painted on the Original Mac's sign?

 

UPDATE 04/06 : The guy on the sign is Mac Nesmon. He and his brother owned and operated Original Mac's. They were from New York city. I first ate there in the Fall of 1955. I lived in Rancho Cordova for 46 years. Many thanks to Robert B. Lynch for info. 04-06
