Oversized folder, mostly undated material, includes: advertisements (broadsides 9x12.5 inches, the first three have street layouts on the back) for Low and Yerkes Subdivision (2); Oakland Land Company's subdivision (which may have been theoretical); Boulevard Park Subdivision; Abstracts of title for Alfred M. Low's Subdivision, 1914 and Water Works, 1919; advertisements, perhaps used by the agents for their own reference (8x17 inches) with street layouts and notes and some names written in, some blocks or lots colored red for: City Heights Subdivision (in 2 pieces), Monterey and Richton (1 printed, 1hand drawnn), Moss Avenue (1 colored in, 1 plain), North Woodward (2 with different notes); 1 complete, 1 partial ad for Woodward Park Subdivision, one with text side and red and green colors, one without text and only green areas. All items have some dirt stains, acid issues, tears, discoloration, ink blots or names crossed out. Companies and agents named are: Geo. H. Carpenter, Martin Brennan, Edward L. Leddy, James H. McDonald, Judson Bradway, Hannan Real Estate, and Gerard-Stormfeltz-Lovely Company. Lots advertised on the broadsides began at $375 or $600. In an effort to sell to single families and not landlords, subdivisions were described in the other advertisements as residential only, no flats in City Heights and Monterey and Richton, where, in the latter, lot prices ranged from $2,250 to $3,500. A street of exclusive bungalows were advertised on Moss Avenue with sidewalks, sewer, water, and gas. North Woodward offered water and gas and was restricted to residences only. Woodward Park was similarly rigidly restricted., 1904-1906
