Excerpts from a pamphlet issued by The Lyle Commercial Club (date unknown): "The lands of Promise must blossom into the land of fulfillment. Here at Lyle is the Land of Promise and of Promises fulfilled. Here will be found splendid shipping facilities. Trans Continental Rail Lines, The North Bank Road and Columbia River Steamers compete for our traffic for out advantage in service and in rates. Our soils are the famous red shot and volcanic ash, rich in the mineral elements, which give color to our fruits and have enabled us to win the highest awards and grand prizes wherever our products have been exhibited."
