SM Apt Names
I live in Santa Monica, California.

There are the ugliest darn apartment buildings around here, all built in the 50's, 60's and 70's. Many of them have one outstanding characteristic, name placards that conjure up images of the Rivira, Mediterranean, Palm Beach and other romantic beach communities of the world. I guess Santa Monica should be on that list as well.

Often these name sign are the only visually interesting part of the entire building.

From a design standpoint I thought it would make a fun collection to post here.

Do other cities have these?
