There are two areas being advertised here; the first is called the Pleasant Valley Tract and it is essentially the acreage off both sides of Pleasant Valley Ave. (now Grand Ave.) from Cottage St. (now Mandana) to the south. Vermont St. is the eastern boundary street; no boundary streets are shown for the north or western portions of the tract. The southern boundary of this tract does, however, abut the northern border of the Lake Side Villa Tract. The other area being offered is formed by Grand Ave. on the west, Mandana to the north, Lakeshore Ave. to the east, and El Embarcadero as the southern boundary street. This area is not shown to be subdivided. The parcel between El Embarcadero and Cross Ave. (what is now Macarthur Blvd.) is shown to be a 6 acre island. In addition to the subdivision map, there is also an index map showing the two areas as darkly shaded. Olney & Co. and H.M. Newhall & Co. are the cited real estate agents. The brochure is printed on yellow paper.
