The California Redwood Association published this booklet for the purpose of calling the attention of engineers, architects, public officials and owners of city property to the fact that redwood blocks, properly treated and laid, make superior street pavements and floors in terms of initial cost, durability, traction, noiselessness, upkeep, and general excellence. The photos show redwood blocks as used in projects from California to Boston, and abroad in places such as London and the Panama Canal Zone.
