         Marketing Photo Album and Ephemera for Crown Estates. Rialto, California: 1959

      Rialto, California: rONALD ePSTEIN, 1959. Near Fine. Quarto. 12" x 9.75". Full leather 14-ring binder, stamped in gilt. 24 mylar sleeved leaves with 34 photographs (14 in color, the rest black and white) and 23 items of ephemera inserted on both sides. An additional 3 color photos, and five duplicates of one of the 8"x10" photos laid in. 16 of the photos (all black and white) measure 8" x 10", the rest around 3.25" x 5". Album near fine with bottom corner of joints just starting to crack; contents generally fine.Crown Estates was meant to be a subdivision in Rialto, California offering homes, "of top quality . . . completely equipped and engineered to make day-by-day living less tedious." Its builder, Ron Epstein, planned the site near the intersection of Meridian Avenue and 6th Street. Although a newspaper puff piece implied the building of 40 homes, we're not sure Epstein was able to accomplish anything more than a couple of models. The album offered here documents his marketing efforts.Epstein took out full-page newspaper ads in August, 1959 and also conducted a promotion where the crowns used by the Miss Universe, Miss U.S.A., and Miss America pageants respectively were displayed in the sales office which also served as the model home. Several examples of the print advertising as well as images of the crowns and models are included. Other photos include interior and exterior shots of model homes. The staged internal shots show couples enjoying dinner and a child sitting in the living room with her father. There are three photos of artist renderings of homes along with floor plans. The marketing made a big deal of "The ManorVac", a built-in vacuum cleaner, and several of the larger photos feature a model amazed at the modern wonder of a cleaning machine attached to her home. Ephemera consists mostly of newspaper advertisements but also includes four copies of a double sided company flier and four copies of a brochure.An interesting look at an imaginitive real estate promotion in California at the end of the 1950s, which seems to rely laregely on the ease of vacuuming!
