We wish to announce to the public that we have
opened offices at 495 Commercial Street, near 12th,
where we will conduct a General Real Estate business.
We have great confidence in the present and future
Astoria and vicinity, bcleiving that in the nearuture
it will enjoy the distinction of being the most important
seaport on the Pacific Coast, a terminal for all the great
Trunk lines to the coast and the center of foreign trade.
50,000 popmlation in 1910 is our mark for Astoria and
vicinity, and there is no reason whatever for not having
it if we will do but one thing only, viz: Wake op and
boost. No one man can do it all, but it takes the hearty
co-operation of the community at large. With the open
ing of our business today we expect to start the greatest
fight for Greater Astoria that she has ever known but
we must have your help.
All we ask of you is that, if you own a piece of real
estate that will do for a business block, hotel, factory,
or any other city building enterprise, list it with us and
let us sell it for you to people who are looking for loca
tions on the Pacific Coast to invest their money. Astoria
might as well have a share of the capital that is coming
to the coast as any other city,
Now is the time to Boost Astoria, so come at once and
list your property with us, no matter what you have or
wheie it is. we can sell it for you. Don't hold back any
longer, but join in and help us make this the most inter
esting city on the coast."
We are open for business today.
