It Requires No Prophet to Foretell...

June 28, 1871 Janesville Gazette
Good information is provided here about the state of the Twin Cities in mid-1871, especially industry facts and figures.  While some of this most likely should be taken with a grain of salt (considering the ulterior motives of the Wisconsin Central to get more visitors and businesses to the area, and therefore more business for it), it is still a fascinating look at an up-and-coming area of Wisconsin.  And this is dated years before the two cities were incorporated in 1873 (Neenah) and 1874 (Menasha.)
