trains, where it was loaded directly

HOMES IN TRACT
Adoption of Twin Peaks Tun
nel Ordinance Spurs Owners
to Make Improvements
As a direct result of the unquali
fied adoption of the Twin peaks tun
nel plans by the board of
supervisors, which means that
work will start at once on
the big municipal project, Newell-
Murdoch company during the last
week closed a sale in Forest Hill
amounting to approximately $35,000
to t'leeve Carson & Sons, the well
known builders. They have pur
chased a very attractive block front
ing on Castenada avenue, between
San Marcos and Montavalo avenues,
and plans have been prepared for the
first two homes, one of which lias al
ready been started.
Bach house will he erected on a $9
foot lot and gardens will be arranged
so as to form a harmonious effect
along the entire street.
The house already under way is to
be one of architectural beauty and
superior finish. The exterior finish
will he cement plaster, the upper
story being half timbered after the
well known old English style. The
lower floor will be finished in hard
wood, the upper floor in white enamel,
and all of the modern conveniences,
such as automatic water heater, fur
nace and sleeping porches, will be in
These houses will be located only
about five minutes' walk from the
westerly pojrtal of Twin peaks tunnel.
Which is situated in Forest Hiil and
for which Newell-Murdoch company
donated the ground in order to assist
the project. .
Being Erected in
The lirst business structure in the
Crocker Amazon tract, 60x100 feet in
size, will be completed and occupied
within the coming lid days. Located at
the transfer corner of Mission street
:ind Geneva avenue, the owner has
selected a logical place to put up the
Rrst three buildings In the restricted 1
business district of the property. Be
ing a two story structure with stores
below and flats above it will prove a j
good income holding.
Much speculation has been made as!
to where the first business structure j
in the Crocker Amazon tract would .
be erected. The civic center, which ;
is the real heart of the subdivision
from which all streets converge, has!
been considered by many the setting j
for the nucleus for the business 41s
trict. How. v. r while this section lost j
the first building preparations are be
ing made for the erection of a struct- i
are, so contenders on either side were j
justified in their convictions.
The restrictions of the property are
such that business sites can be built
only On the Mission street frontage
and in Geneva avenue for a distance
tt two 1 .locks and the district which
is the heart of the civic center.

EVERY AUTO OWNER IS
INVITED TO JOIN THE
CALL'S TRIP TO PEAKS
The automobile party of The Call tomorrow morning will he a merry
one. The Call cordially invites the owner of every automobile m the city
to join the party at The Call office tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock o?
tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock. Bring your family or your friends in your
machine and enjoy an outing that you will always remember.
It looks like The Call's party tomorrow will be the tiggest thing of
its kind San Francisco has ever seen.
More than 500 persons have registered for tickets for the big auto
mobile ride out through Golden Gate park and through the beautiful resi
dence parks of St. Francis Wood, Ingleside Terraces and Forest Hill.
Most of the business men who have registered put their names down
with the remark, "I've been planning to see that country for a long time."
Twin Peaks tunnel will do to the beautiful vistas beyond the hills
what tedious reclamation work does for the desert.
TRACTS FAMOUS OVERNIGHT
Never has been a piece of reclaimed land that jumped in value
overnight with the assurance of a hole through a hill.
Yesterday the country beyond Twin Peaks was barren.
Tcjday its groves of graceful trees are edged with green lawns and
bordered in asphalt drives and walks, a pioneer home peeping out of a
bovver here and there entice the sightseer.
. St. Francis Wood, Forest Hill and Ingleside Terraces, wonderful
residence tracts, are beckoning to you.
"Come and see me," each one says. "See the broad Pacific from one
eye. the restive bay with the other; turn and rave about my roses and
evergreen trees; feel the sharp breath of salt air. I want you to stay
with me always." . *
EXODUS TO NEW RESIDENCE SECTION
And the. best thing "about it is that the man of moderate meaivs who
goes through the new country is interested in the price of lots before he
gets back to_ the city."
The Call, .with a fleet of touring cars at its disposal, is going to show-
Forest* Hill, Ingleside Terraces and St. Francis Wood to all who care to
make the trip Sunday.
Since the board of 'supervisors accepted plans for the Twin Peaks
bore San Franciscans have become convinced the tunnel is a reality
for the near future. Consequently there is an exodus in the direction of
the new home parks every Sunday.
TICKETS DELIVERED AT HOME
Two adults will be taken from each family. No children will be al
lowed on the trip.
Tickets will be delivered to your home address. None will be given
out at the office.
