The Merchant Tailor




Studies You




When you order a suit
from a .Merchant Tailor you
become the individual study
of a creative artist. Your
person must not only be
suited, but your clothes must
harmonize with your person-
ality.

The suit made for you by
a Merchant Tailor is a study
in "good taste." It has style
that is correct without be-
ing extreme or erratic. It

has 1 n made for you. It

is characteristic of yourself.

A good tailor never makes
two suits alike.

Every customer that comes
to him has a different indi-
viduality. He seeks to fit
each individuality as well as
each figure.

Only in garments shaped
to your figure — adapted to
your personality — made from
materials becoming to you,
can you get the distinction
and dignity which mark the
Merchant Tailored man.

.Merchant Tailor clothes
are an investment well worth
the cost. Apart from the
improvement they make in
your appearance, they retain
their shape and their style as
long as the garments are
worn.

\ presenting the twenty-fourth annual volume of the
Oakland, Berkeley and Alameda Directory to our patrons,
we feel assured thai it will be Found the best we have
Issued.

Great pain- has been taken in gathering the Informa-
iikI no expense spared to thoroughly cover the Beld. Some Idea
ol the labor Involved can be conceived, when it is taken Into consid-
eration thai even residence, stoic and place of business in seventy-
ftve sqnare miles of territory must be visited once and hundreds of
them twice or three time- to get the data correctly. Every factory,
mill and -tore was visited and the name, residence and occupation

Of each employe taken.

Only experienced men were employed in the work and all in-
formation carefully examined each day in order to reduce error- to
a minimum and cnahle us to turn out a complete and accurate
Directory.

Our city has lieen constantly growing in population during the
last decade and today has the brightest future of any city on the
coast. We would invite special attention to the facts and figures
presented by The Oakland Real 1. state Association on page 148".

These statements are authentic and make very Interesting reading to

every citi/.en who ha- the future welfare of Oakland at heart.

POPULATION

The Oakland portion of this Directory contains 7!».2(>.S names,
Berkeley 21,530 name-. Alameda 10,935 name-.

M'ter deducting all linns and business places, psing the multiple
2'/2 to represent the women and children not enumerated in our work,
•lives a population for Oakland of 187.600, Berkeley 53.800 and Ala-
meda 27,337. The figures for Oakland include Piedmont and Emery-
ville.

The building permit- -how a steady growth for our city and all
things points to a great future for this, our "Greater Oakland."

Thanking our patrons and friend- for the assistance given us in
gathering the information necessary to produce this work, we remain.

Respectfully.
