Bellerose Homes For Under $5,000!

3711244Purchase a home for under $5,000 and free life insurance with every purchase! Obviously not anymore. Where have those days gone?

The ad is for houses on 252 St.  There were three “model homes” (84-12, 84-16 and 84-20) that were built first.  This add probably dates back to 1937 or 1938.

Click the image to the left to view the flyer. The date of the flyer is unknown right now. If anyone has an idea of the year, please let me know.
