At that time the tract on which the Ayres family home was built consisted mostly of barley and strawberries. Mrs. Moser's father, Samuel A. Ayres, who operated a grocery store in Los Angeles, built his home at 1121 South Central. The home is still standing as is the Tropico Presbyterian Church of which Mrs. Moser was a member.
Mrs. Moser and her mother are credited with the naming of Central Avenue and also of the laying out of Park Avenue which now is Chevy Chase Drive.
