Summary expansion
The catalog contains a diagram of the furnace, with technical explanation of its benefits, such as economical, sootless, self-cleaning, gas-tight, easy to operate, low in price, made of first class materials, and of local manufacture designed especially for the Southern California climate. Also included are 32 large (16 x 221 cm) and 38 small (9 x 12 cm) photographic reproductions of homes in Los Angeles in which the F.E. Browne furnace has been installed, with captions identifying the owner of the home, the address, and in some cases, the architect. Although most of the photos are of residences, several are commercial properties such as the Hotel Bellevue Terrace, the Nadeau Hotel, the Brunswick Hotel, and the Los Angeles National Bank Building. The last [5] pages list the names of parties using the furnace up to April 1, 1896, arranged by location and type of building, and short testimonials from satisfied owners
