In The Morning Oregonian, 8 Nov 1911, Mead & Murphy took out a half-page ad and showed many pictures of finished homes in Laurelhurst. It's so big, I had to downsize it to capture the screenshot on my computer screen.
Homes Rise in Laurelhust
The Western Contracting Company has started the erection of a $9000 home for A.L. McKenzie on Hazelfern avenue near East Glisan street, in Laurelhurst. It will be 32x48 feet in size with a 10-foot porch across the entire front. It will be one of the most attractive homes in Laurelhurst. The company also is building a home for R.R. Adams on East Everett and Hazelfern streets (now 3502 NE Flanders), Laurelhurst, at a cost of $7500.
