Souvenir of Berlin (ca. 1914)
Souvenir album made up of a series of early twentieth century coloured postcards, reprinted in book form, depicting various scenes around Berlin, Ontario. The title page contains factoids about Berlin which were typical of boosterism publications at that time. Included is a tally of the number of manufacturing industries – 130 of them – as well as a note that Berlin was declared a city in 1912 as a result of attaining a population of 16,000 residents.
Only one other copy of this small album is known to exist.
