Publication: Privately printed, n d (ca 1910), Portland

A scarce color, pictorial promotional for The Dalles, Oregon, on the Columbia River, published by Southern Pacific and the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company. The text lauds the diverse, unfailing crops and unlimited water power of the area, as well as ease of transport both by river and rail, while the photographic images depict scenes of the town and local agricultural endeavors. Two additional cards provide brief promotional details of Ashland, Oregon, and allow the recipient to send away for more information from their Commercial Club. We locate only one copy, at the University of Oregon. Fine copy.
