Right after the 1906 Earthquake and Fire




“Over 1000 lots have been sold at Halfmoon Bay during the last four months. The advent of spring will find hundreds of these investors erecting suburban homes and villas in this, the most beautiful beach country along the California coast. Halfmoon Bay is already a town of 1250 inhabitants. Connected with San Francisco by the Ocean Shore Railroad, the Brophy Tract at Halfmoon Bay will be a forty minute ride from Third and Market streets on the finest scenic railroad system in the country. Possessing a beautiful beach, backed by fine wooded hills, an excellent climate, fine spring water, unsurpassed railroad facilities, with a community of suburban homes of San Francisco business men, Halfmoon Bay realty values will increase by leaps and bounds. The immense pleasure enterprises projected by the Ocean Shore Railroad at this point will make this the most attractive resort in the entire state.”
