TENT CITY ON HOTEL ROOF IN SAN DIEGO, CALIF. (Sep, 1914)
TENT CITY ON HOTEL ROOF IN SAN DIEGO, CALIF.
An unusual method of coining dollars from the waste space on the roof of a building is shown in this view of the U. S. Grant Hotel in San Diego, where about twenty tents have been pitched far above the city. The view is fine, the air good, and as the elevator and other hotel service is at hand, the guests enjoy camp life and city advantages together. The proprietor receives a good rate for these quarters, so that the novel idea is beneficial all around.
