A very interesting little real estate pamphlet, written towards convincing people to moving to Cumberland, Maryland. At the time Cumberland was an up-and-coming industrial town– not quite “booming,” but definitely on the edge. The pamphlet goes into detail about what kind of businesses, tourist attractions, historical monuments, and development opportunities exist in Cumberland and nearby areas.
