Smith Reserve

The Qarden Spot of the East Bay, the Princely Estate of
F. M. "Borax" Smith



Selected years ago by F. M. "Borax" Smith, as a private estate when he
owned thousands of acres of the choicest residential property in the East
Bay, Smith Reserve was set aside for elaborate development. For years it
has been held off of the market awaiting the growth of the East Bay, the
increase of population that would assure appreciation of this beautiful "home
park." And now that this has come you can realize your dreams of a home
in its most inspiring surroundings.

From the green rolling hills, abundant v\-ith shrubbery the year around,
marvelous panoramas greet you on every side. Below you lies the Bay with
the great cities spread about its shores, and beyond, the Pacific Ocean.
(Baedekker, the world famous guide book writer, has said that Oakland has
the third finest marine view in the world.) And behind you are the wooded
slopes and canyons, now thickly dotted with lovely homes. And yet, the
very nature of this subdivision forbids the fear of crowded houses, so thought-
fully has it been laid out.

Smith Reserve is truly nature's garden spot, and from the first golden
touch of sunrise to the colorful sunsets out beyond the Golden Gate each
hour brings a new joy, which you may view from your living room windows.

As a homesite, Smith Reserve is beyond comparison; as an investment it
is above criticism. You can spread your purchase over so many years that
it will never be a burden to you at any time, and rest secure in the knowledge
that your investment is safe, maturing steadily toward a gratifying profit.

The essential thing is to act now; over a million dollars of property
has been sold in Smith Reserve in a little over a year.

STEPHEN T. WILLIS. President

WILLIS SCHOOL is devoted exclusively to secretarial training.

The WILLIS method of improved individual instruction enables the student
to progress as rapidly as he or she can master tlie work. WILLIS SCHOOL
provides a finishing course of actual office practice for its students that is of
great practical value.

Our teaching staff comprises thoroughly capable, painstaking, and sympathetic
teachers, and a greater number in proportion to students than is customary.
WILLIS SCHOOL possesses an equipment of a nature seldom found in a
business school anywhere, and much superior to that of any other in this part
of California.

It takes less time to reach a given degree of proficiency by the AMllis method
than by any other.
