tions. Manhattan Beach prices are only a fraction of those readily obtained at other beaches, no matter how far from Los Angeles, with which Mr. Huntington has
been even remotely connected.

Hlgh*prlce<l property In the . old
i wholesale district down Los Angeles
street and tn other localities has
'' caused several firms to look els«
, toiler* for suitable space on which to
i erect suitable buildings. The favored
i Motion appears to be along East First
. And Alameda streets. Th« Santa Ft
, company will provld§ shipping fnci'i
tl«s by building a switch track along
t Banning street. It Is stated that in th 4
. near future a number of large brick
buildings and warehouses, to be used
, by wholesale firms will be erected.
f Several big contracts were let for pro
; posed improvements last Thursday and
I Among the sales closed by A. B. Cril
tenden last week were the following:
For F. O. Schumacher to Z. D.
Mathus and others, fifty feet on the
north side of East First street, 300 feet
east of Alameda street. This property
has a depth of 240 feet, with a frontage
of 40 feet on Banning street, so that It
has the advantage of switching facili
ties with the Santa Fe. This lot is con
sidered a bargain at the price for
which it was sold, $17,200. It was
bought for an investment.
For Chas. J. Albrecht of Riverside,
a lot' on the south side of Banning
street, 300 feet east of Alameda street,
a frontage of £6 feet by 100 feet tv
depth; consideration of $2000.
To a local merchant who will im
prove with a two-story business block
the properties of Thomas S. Wads
worth and N. Prior in the block north
of Jackson street, between North San
Pedro street and Alameda street,, and
also block 2 of the Pryor tract, for the
Union Hardware and Metal company.
These afford a large area for improve
ments. The consideration was $1 per
In the McCarthy Company Tracts and
; Additions In Southwest Section
Continued activity in building in the
McCarthy company's three big tracts
and five separate additions in the south
western section of the city keeps pace
in large measure with the sale of lots
Within three weeks nearly all of the
126 lots In the Main Street and Moneta
Avenue tract were sold at an average
price of *600, or'a t0ta1, 0f, »76,000. . The
average price of lots In the Moneta
Avenue and Figueroa Street tract is
**50. There are 130 lots in the Main
Street, Moneta Avenue atid Flguefoa
Street tract, j Many sales have been
made in the several additions, the grand
total aggregating $150,000. First-class
Improvements have been made in all cf
the tracts. ... . ■ .• . ■
The popularity of this section of th«
city is due partly to the new car line
and extension but largely to the fact
that purchasers are Just beginning to
realize the proximity of the city to this
district and the many natural advan
tages, such as perfect soil and drainage,
good water supply, street work and the
fact that these tracts He between the
three great arteries of the city — Main
street, Moneta avenue and Figueroa
street. The average size of residence
is . seven-room, story and a half, bun
galow, effect, or two-story residence
costing $2000 to $2500. This class" of im
provements bids well for the future
advanced values in this location.
