An unusual opportunity for the public to view the exacting nature of the construction of a modern mausoleum is now being afforded at Sunset Mausoleum, states Fred A. Purner, general manager. "In order that visitors may see the methods of building used in this work, 55 Purner said, "we have had a stairway erected to a runway so that interested parties can walk around the top of the entire Lawn Terrace. "All of tlie reinforced concrete work for Lawn Terrace, an architectural part of the first unit of Sunset Mausoleum, has now been completed. There are more than 1000 cpypts contained in this and under our present arrangement of enabling visitors to view the construction details they can see the double reinforced walls in their entirety and the very sub-starillal cross beams that will support Sunset Terrace.

Forms for the floor of Sunset Terrace are now being erected and will be completed so that concrete can be poured next week. Just as soon as the concrete has set the delicate work of placing the marble will begin. Present plans are to Have sections entirely completed by. the end of this month.

Sunset Mauso leum is being built to withstand the ravages of time; it will last throughout the ages, as the granite and marble tombs of the ancients have endured until the present time. Marble, bronze, con crete and glass are the only materials used in the construction of this mausoleum. These are ma terials more substantial than the earth Itself, and they endure throughout the passing years with out erosion by either time or weather. "It will be years before the entire plan of Sunset Mausoleum will materialize into its completed form. but the plans have been so well laid that it Is expected sections in Lawn TepiftCSill be ready this month.

Our Piedmont environment, proximity to shopping districts and downtown Oakland, moderate prices and the assured future value which is certain to follow in Oakmore, made their appeal of course, but were discounted by the demand for plenty of sunshine for the youngsters.

"This means that when there Is sunshine to be had any place In the entire district, Oakmore Highlands is sure to enjoy it.
