1907 - Battle Creek "The City Beautiful" - Images from an Early 20th Century Promotional Booklet

Worked on a restoration of the 1907 booklet some time back, likely in time for the centennial of the original publication.  The map shows the location of the buildings against the city's current configuration.  Most of the buildings are now areas for parking lots, areas that are also now without a reason for parking, because... well, the buildings aren't there!  Oh that progress!

But I digress.  Here are the pictures! (click on the image for enlarged viewing of the jpg)
