Stucco Work and
By Tom Le Suer I
The stuccoing of the exterior
walls and tho plastering of the in-
terior walls of the Home Beautiful
are Indeed a work of art and cori-
cluslvely display the ability ami ej
t iclency of Tom LeSuer who did all
plastering and stucco work on thu
building. The fact that Mr. LoSyer
has been Jn this industry for for.ty-
one years evidences the years of
experience that he has had whlqn
has coverca a wiae range ot terri-
tory and every conceivable kind
of residence and building.
Mr. IJeSuer came to Abilene fif-
teen years ngo from Nashville
Tenn. and since that time has play
cd an Important" part in thB con-
struction of uoino of the largost and
handsomest homes and public
buildings in tho city. To cnumer-.
