Rotary City Beautiful Collection XLIX
Inclusive dates: 1914
 
Scope Notes
 
Lantern slide collection which documents the effort by the Davenport Rotary Club to beautiful the city by encouraging planting of gardens and flowers. Slides include before and after plantings of various houses as well as slogans and certificates related to the program. Most lantern slides have been added to the Upper Mississippi Valley Digital Image Archive.
 
Collection contains 73 slides. Note that gaps in numbering on slides were maintained instead of the slides being renumbers. This was done hoping the rest of the slides would be found and incorporated into this collection. Also see Lantern Slide Collection LXVIII. Some of the missing slides may have been incorporated into this collection.
