Home Building Record
As stupendous ns the Information is
regarding the building record for April,
the fact that 576 separate residences,
embracing one story, one and one-half

home spots agregated $815,259. and is
only Indicative of the wonderful ex
pansion of Los Angeles.
Rightly to comprehend this factor
