In the belief that the public prefers to see actual results, rather
than to read of our search for them, this collection of "One Hundred
Views of Kearney," from actual photographs, is offered. Modern photographic
art is a faithful servant, and may be used to chronicle the life and
accomplishment of a city. Realizing this fact, we have prepared these
pages, endeavoring to dispense as far as possible with wordy chapter and
confusing statistics. The picture tells a story of modern enterprise,
progress and accomplishment in the Great Mid-West, which, we believe, will
sufficiently interest those into whose hands they fall to make them desire
to cast their future with ours in continuing the work of progress.
The embossed bust of General Phil Kearny shown on the cover is taken
from a life size bronze bust presented to the city of Kearney by
General J. Watts Depeyster, January, 1992.
