Friday Photo: Advertising Butte

Are you planning a vacation this summer? Do you get ideas from travel brochures or magazines? Here's the cover of a pamphlet, published during the Great Depression, that aimed to lure tourists to Butte, Montana.

Montana Historical Society Research Center
Published in 1933 by the Butte Chamber of Commerce, the brochure describes the city this way: "Beautiful by night, unique by day, Butte is literally 'a city set upon a hill, which cannot be hid.'" You can read the rest of the promotion here.

What do you think? Based on this description, would you visit Butte?
