[Valentine, Nebraska, 1910]. 8vo (9" x 8"), staple binding. 8 pp. including illustrated wrappers.

A scarce brochure promoting Valentine, Nebraska’s attractions to prospective residents and tourists alike, covering the city’s "fairyland picnic spots," summer cottages, county fair grounds, a game preserve, and more.

Named after Nebraska representative Edward K. Valentine, the city of Valentine was established in 1882, the Sioux City & Pacific Railroad reaching the city the following year. The brochure features multiple photo-illustrations of the city’s noteworthy locales and features. On the front cover is an image of the Jack Darr Bridge over the Niobrara River and an illustration of Gilman Park. Other illustrations picture Valentine’s numerous waterfalls, summer cottages in Gilman Park, views of Lake Minnechaduza (and the beautiful wood, low-lying hills surrounding the lake), State Fisheries (showing hatchery and a small part of the ponds), elk and buffalo on the Niobrara Game Preserve, scenes at the Cherry County Fair Grounds, harvesting ice in the winter, drying fish, and more. The back-cover features a small map of Valentine and its surrounding area, as well as text (in the form of a shield within a circle), providing extensive information on stores, bakeries, cafes, physicians, lawyers, dentists, fraternal organizations, men's social Boy Scouts, Campfire Girls, education, hospital, a water supply, etc.
