24 pages. Amazing. This appears to be presentation quality that was provided during a fine dinner meeting. The meal menu from June 24th, 1926 is inserted among the pages. Pamphlet is 8.5" x 9.5" fine brown paper cover with parchment quality pages inside. Contents include a photo of the new (at that time)exchange building, photos of the exchange officers (Ford E. Hovey, President), A brief history of the company, photos of the main entrance, lobby, executive offices, general offices, lounge room,convention hall, dining room,coffee shop, kitchen, photos of the first three livestock buildings, receipts of live stock for 42 years, Building directory, and a photo of the bronze(?) tablet placed in the lobby of the new livestock office building as a memorial to Everett Buckingham.The front cover of the pamphlet has a smudge of the cover which could best be described as an office chair's caster wheel rolling over its surface. No tears or bends. A wonderful piece of history from the world's largest livestock yard during its heyday.This pamphlet is from a private collection that was donated to Friends of the Omaha Public Library.
