Lookout Mountain Park, Between the City and the Sea. Home Office: 1093 Story Building, Los Angeles, Cal. There has been a distinct demand for building lots at a resaonabe price upon a high elevation where there is more pure air and a fine view, along real mountain environments, yet close enough to the City to be easily accessible for business men. Lookout Mountain Park supplies this ideal; beautiful boulevard roadways up and down the mountain; and purest of mountain spring water; and above all, the most wonderful panoramic view to be had on the Pacific Coast, showing the mountains, the ocean, the Islands of Santa Catalina and Santa Barbara and 20 Cities and towns in the valley below. This addition is reached by the Los Angeles Pacific Laurel Canyon Electric Cars, and a most charming automobile ride from Laurel Canyon station to the mountains' peak."
