Building an Image, 1938

Building an Image, 1938

This promotional poster, published in about 1938, was clearly an effort to attract more businesses and residents to the community. (Please tap on screen to enlarge for readability.) Although an organizing entity is not identified, the presumed sponsors are boldfaced in the last paragraph. Just whose idea this was, and whether it was successful, has not been determined. Punctuation may leave something to be desired, but the image the promoters were trying to convey is clear: “…fine, modern homes and barns, electric lighted, splendid roads.” Also note school activities include a “Hydroquinone Club.” (Hydroquinone is, or was, a chemical used in developing photographs.)
