Villa, Hernando G. (cover illustration).
January 1, 1909 issue of the magazine, black and white illustrations, unpaginated, 15 1/2 x 11 inches, color pictorial wrappers. Wear to extremities; back cover is detached with many repaired tears and some paper loss along the spine edge; edge tears and light soiling to front cover. A few short tears to page edges, but interior is overall in good to very good condition. A fascinating glimpse of Pasadena of over one hundred years ago. Thirteen pages devoted to the 20th annual Tournament of the Roses. Also of interest is a seven page illustrated article "Characteristic Pasadena Homes" by Grace Hortense Tower which features black and white images of Pasadena homes and surrounding landscapes, many with their owners noted; a single page illustrated article "The Bungalow Idea". Much interesting advertising including an ad for the Tom Reed Gold Mines Company. Wonderful gift for a Pasadena resident. Item #49984
