Beautiful Ginter Park - 1907

This 1907 ad for the Lewis Ginter Land & Improvement Company claims that Ginter Park has "Highest elevation of any suburb, thus ensuring pure air and good health." Note how few lots have houses, and that the trolley goes up Chamberlayne Ave, turning West on Laburnum Ave and crossing Brook "Turnpike."
