St. Louis River Water Power Company:

THE GREAT WATER POWER OF THE NORTHWEST AT THE HEAD OF ST. LOUIS BAY. THE ST. LOUIS RIVER WATER-POWER COMPANY. THE COUNTRY TRIBUTARY TO LAKE SUPERIOR! THE NORTHWESTERN GRAIN FIELDS! THE RIVER ST. LOUIS! THE NECESSITY FOR AND VALUE OF THE NEW MILLING POWER OF THE RIVER ST. LOUIS, AND THE EXPORTING FACILITIES OF DULUTH AND SUPERIOR CITY.

Russell & Creamer, Philadelphia: 1883 Original printed wrappers [light soil] and staples. 30 clean pages. Very Good plus. This is a scarce prospectus for the Company, a Wisconsin corporation formed in 1881 with plans to use the water power of the River. The rapids of the St. Louis River, near Duluth, furnish "one of the greatest of all the available water powers of the world." Indeed, "the water power of the Mississippi, at its one place of fall, is so much less in available power than the fall of the St. Louis River." When fully developed, the area around Duluth will be preferable to Chicago for "the great markets of the East." Much material is presented on the opportunities for development of the lumber trade, and available natural resources. Expenses, data on area commerce, and material on commerical opportunities are presented. FIRST EDITION. 515 NUC 0038380 [2]. Not in Eberstadt, Decker, Soliday, Graff.
