Win a gas clothes dryer—now and then

Downey house

If you picked the winning name for this Downey home back in 1962, you could win an automatic gas clothes dryer.

This home must have been a Southern California Gas Company showcase. It offers gas air conditioning, a built-in gas range, and gas lighting outside. However, even the gas company has to give a nod to electricity: "... it's equipped with Balanced power—both Gas and electricity, for the jobs each does best."
