Jamaica: Stewart Development Corp., n.d. [c. 1924], Folding promotional brochure for a new housing development "Just beyond Jamaica--at the Very Edge of New York City." Brochure opens up to show a 52 x 34 cm aerial "Chandler View" of the property available, showing its relation to the city, transportation and schools, shopping, etc. Quite bucolic. Much of the text is aimed at investors but some is for potential settlers: "A Home in Queens Park Gardens protects your youngsters from moral dangers and creates in them character which will determine their whole future." 23.5 cm (folded); large sheet printed both sides; illustrated with photographs, drawings, and map. A very good copy. (Item ID: 012921)
