San Francisco: San Carlos Park Syndicate.
Undated, ca. 1907. Single-page circular, or possibly a removed advertisement, backed on linen. 9 x 6 inches, printed in green and red, illustrated with half-tone photograph of the San Carlos railroad depot. Minor damage to lower left corner; very good. An effusive promotional piece for the newly developing San Francisco suburb of of San Carlos Park (now San Carlos, population 28,000) in San Mateo County. The Syndicate promises an ideal home for the "the business man, the professional man, the merchant, the banker, and the captialist," with "orchards, vineyards, and acreage, in the most beautiful tract of land on the San Francisco Bay Shore--rolling, picturesque, and grand," where streets will soon be "graded, macadamized, sewered, and lighted," the climate is perfect, and the scenery "charming and picturesque."
