Pyramid scheme

Would you buy a house from this outfit?

Sphinx Realty Co., early 1920s

The sensational discovery of the tomb of "King Tut" (Tutankhamen) in 1922 sent the world into an egyptological frenzy. This savvy operation at 537 N. Fairfax [corrected, per Los Angeles Public Library records] cashed in on the craze.

A quick Google search turns up modern-day Sphinx Realty companies in Atlanta, Chicago, and Worcester, MA.
