9781372612596: Parkersburg, 1907; A Souvenir of the City of Parkersburg ... and a Symposium of the Industrial, Commercial, Professional, Social and Religious Life, ... City Directory of Parkersburg and Her Suburbs

Excerpt from Parkersburg, 1907: Containing Photographic Views of Residences, Business Places, Churches, Schools, Public Buildings, Landscapes and Places of Interest in and About Parkerburg

It is with great pleasure we offer to Parkersburg our New Industrial Souvenir and City Directory of this beautiful city. We have sincerely tried to present the manifold constructive interests of the city in a pleasant and interesting way, and to give you a book that would serve as a guide to the social, professional, commercial and industrial life of the city, and have illustrated same so profusely that the pictures alone tell nearly the whole story. While we have spared no expense to verify facts and prevent blunders, and have bent every effort to give you a correct City Directory and Symposium of the Industrial, Social and Religious life of the city, we know that owing to the training of new help in the work, some mistakes will creep in or some names or facts be overlooked. These errors will be corrected in future editions, when assistants more fully understand their work.

Our gratitude goes out to those who have so earnestly helped us in making this work of interest and of such educational value, that it should be in every home for the instruction of the youth, and some not so young, regarding the merits and advantages of their home city. Our purpose has been to make a work not only useful but necessary in the home, as well as a beautiful Souvenir to send to friends elsewhere, and so secure their interest in Parkersburg and her future.

Especially do we wish to thank the force of Parkersburg young ladies who personally canvassed the city and obtained the names, occupations and addresses for the Directory and to those enterprising citizens who have given us of their time and encouragement in preparing this work, notably Col. Charles B. Kefauver, the President of the Dispatch News, that hustling and wide-awake newspaper man who is earnestly laboring for a greater and better Parkersburg; to A. C. Davis, general manager of the West Virginia Western Telephone Company, who is a double-distilled and forceful compound of brains, energy, courage and grit, whose constructive work in Parkersburg's interest has made telephone rates so reasonable that a telephone exists in almost every home; to Mr. T. R. Cowell, the Vice President of the Cairo & Kanawha Railway, who is represented in many of the city's leading industries as a stockholder or director; to Mr. C. R. Kerr, the photographer, for the portrait work herein; to Mr. H. C. Fischer, of Marietta, for the many beautiful views of Parkersburg taken in the summer time, as well as the winter scenes; and to many others too numerous to mention for helpful work in preparing this beautiful Souvenir, showing the social, professional, commercial, industrial and religious life of our city, illustrated so profusely that every one must see the beauty and desirability of our city as a place of residence, of business, as a manufacturing center, or a shipping point, trade center and outlet for the natural wealth of West Virginia to the markets of the North, Northeast and West.
