Portland to Pennsylvania

From PT reader Andy Coupland:

You correctly identify the fabulous reno of the Portland Hotel in your recent picture piece. These days it’s known by its last commercial name – The Pennsylvania Hotel – and it’ll be getting a significant piece of signage to reflect that on the corner of the building. It was once the Woods Hotel – and the sign for that was much more impressive! As you know, the Portland name was re-used on the Arthur Erickson designed New Portland Hotel.
