Newly Digitized: Chamber of Commerce pamphlets from 1902, 1903, 1906 and 1920

Posted On: April 7, 2014

Four pamphlets published by the Chamber of Commerce (formerly the Board of Trade) have been digitized and added to the Archives section of the site. They can be accessed via the finding aid for the Whittier Chamber of Commerce archive box.

These pamphlets sing the praises of early Whittier. They were intended to advertise the town as a great place to live, with stats and photos that reveal Whittier as having excellent schools, churches, industry potential, and social clubs.

Here are direct links to the pamphlets:
