RESIDENCES OF
PORT WASHINGTON
"The Summer Resort of Wisconsin"
NO CITY TAXES
Here in the city of Port Washington is one of
the most attractive spots in the entire state, to live
and to enjoy life. No city taxes, made possible by
the coming of the mammoth Electric Company
power plant. Conveniences as you have them in
the bigger cities, yet you escape the grind and tur-
moil and confusion that are part of all big cities.
With other sections of the state and country
gasping for relief from the intensely hot weather
that has prevailed this summer, Port Washington
is always comfortably cool, due to its close prox-
imity to Lake Michigan. The city is often-times
aptly compared to "California at its best."
If you want to live, happily, congenially, com-
fortably, think seriously of the beautiful city of
Port Washington, with its charming Lake Michigan
beaches, for bathing and fishing. You will make
friends quickly; we will we'come you wholeheartedly.
