    The style of the book would probably be 1900-1925.

    The era of the restaurant is datable as it is noted twice in Times articles…circa 1905/06. The book could be dated as it contains photos of the PE railway management at the time (including H.H.) and many early SoCal features of a particular period…safe to say is probably before 1911 and possibly as early as the opening year of the 6th & Main Terminal which is in the photos (brand new).
