Pictorial Kearney, Nebraska

Kearny, NE: John A. Stryker.

Undated, ca. 1920. 48 pp, 6 x 9 inches, oblong, in original string-tied wrappers, with oval cut-out window on front cover revealing color landscape below. Light soiling and edgewear to wraps, lower corner of last three leaves clipped; very good. Scarce promotional view book, containing one page of text highlighting the various features of this "thriving city of 10,000 cultured, happy, industrious people," which offers a range of shopping and recreation activities, inexpensive power, and a climate that is somehow both "mild and bracing." The rest of the book is entirely half-tone views of businesses, street scenes, parks, residences, farms and ranches, churches, schools, and other public institutions. John Stryker, the publisher, was a local photographer (and penmanship instructor), and most of the images are credited either to him or another Kearney photographer, Alfred T. Anderson. Two copies located in OCLC (Columbia, U. Oklahoma).
