[Red Bluff]: Tehama County Exposition Commission [and] Board of Supervisors, n.d. (1900 or earlier). Undated; all farm machinery shown is all drawn by mule teams. A single folio leaf of coated white stock with 18 b&w photographs of good to eat stuff on trees and on the hoof. One color photo, an orange tree, and a full-page map in colors of northern California, an artist's rendering of the topography with Tehama the central image in garish green and red. Leaf is 18x24 inches folded into the classic 9x4 inch gasstation-map format, foldlines worn with outer lines a little dirty, several small holes at intersections. A good-only copy.
The county's sobriquet earned thusly: "At the California State Fair, in open competition with all other counties, Tehama County won the first cash prize and was awarded this banner [shown in red, yellow and blue]; hence the name, Banner County." Text is competitive: the county lies on latitude 40, which is the same as that of Denver, St. Joe, Springfield, Indianapolis, Columbus and Philadelphia, and is "..warmed by a temperature equally as kind to plant life as that of the Los Angeles country.." [country sic].
