    Watercolor, Thorndike hotel, Emerson Collge connection

    I purchased this original watercolor about 21" by 16" (actual painting size) by a C or L Emerson at a farm auction in NJ for $25.00. The painting has the name Hotel Thorndike, Boston, MA on the back. Hotel Thorndike was about 2 blocks from Emerson College. The Hotel went out of business in the 1930s so I assume that this painting is from the time period 1898 to 1930 when the hotel was active. It is in very good condition. Any abnormalities are from the light reflecting off the glass cover.

    I am wondering if this has any relationship to Emerson College since it is signed by an Emerson and is only 2 blocks away. Seems to be more than a coincidence. I cannot find any info on the artist or connection to the college. If any of you sleuths can help me I definitely would appreciate it.
