Low Rent but Top Drawer: 1930s 'Tourist Court' Architecture

This is where I hang my hat. These are technically apartments but they are more like little connected cottages in a grove of huge oak trees right in the middle of a very nice section of Raleigh.  

I suspect that this sign in the community laundry mat has been around quite a while. Perhaps since the 50s or earlier. Also in the laundry room are these cool Herman Miller office chairs. They may have been there since the 1950s. The management company certainly didn't put them there out of a desire to instill a Mad Men look to the laundry room.
