FIRST BUILDING FINISHED
ON THE FAIR GROUNDS
Service Structure to Be Occupied at Once and Constructioi
: Work Pushed on Exhibit Places and
Boulevards ..i-P
________
With the completion of the service
building at the Panama-Pacific exposi
tion grounds the public has tangible
evidence of a vast amount of prepara
tory work which has been accom
plished. The Department of Works
will move into the service building
early next week and this building will
be' the headquarters of all exposition
construction activities.
A vast amount of grading, leveling
and steam" shoveling has been done
upon the grounds and, the first load
of lumber arrived last Saturday.
Heavy plank roads to facilitate rapid
construction have been built through
out a large portion of the grounds
leading to the sites of the main exhibit
palaces.
The spraying of the service building
with a faint buff tone, reveals
the color scheme that will characterize
all the exposition palaces.
A complete revetment has been
built along the water front of the
entire exposition site and the roadway
around Fort Mason and leading
through the exposition grounds is
practically completed. This makes a
scenic boulevard and on last Sunday
thousands of sightseers drove out in

At last you can live in the foothills of
Burlingame without having to have an
auto or carriage. The new Easton elec
tric car line will be running within a
week to the station.
Even though it is a short walk, it is
good to know that when tired or the
weather stormy you can ride for a nickel.
In the foothills you have climate,
views, trees, large lots, drainage. The
most natural and the most charming
place to live is in our new "Easton Num
ber Seven."
Don't you like it? Have you seen
it? If not, why today?

automobiles through Fort Mason and
over the exposition grounds. When
completed this road will enable the
sightseer to go through Fort Mason
across the grounds and then over and
through the Presidio.
The exposition work thus far has
been remarkable for its evenness and
all exhibit building.s will be completed
at least nine months before the exposi
tion opens. These buildings do not
require long for their construction and
there would be no object \is havtng
them stand idle for too lone: a period.
The work has been planned so there
can be no undue congestion in
constructing the buildings and at the
same time there will be no idle periods
in which work is not under full swing.
The improvement and grading of the
grounds has completely changed tin
appearance of Harbor View and brought
out into prominence the surrounding
scenery and attractions. The trans
port docks, which will be reached l>y
the boulevard alluded to above, to
gether with the great government
transports, will'prove an added attrac
tion to visitors. Thousands of people
now go upon the grounds every Satur
day and Sunday.
