This company promised to lower building costs by standardizing sizes and using machine labor. They had a permanent exhibit of 50 sample homes on 81st Street in Los Angeles, and they were noted in this book. A clever way to really see it before you built it! In addition to the 125 home plans promised in the title, there are some unusual structures included, such as a real estate office, a gas station, a bank, a library, and a barn. Scarce; we haven't seen a copy of this before.
