Bonners Ferry as described in 1937 [1]

Bonners Ferry, the seat of Boundary County, is the center of an agricultural and lumbering area. It is at the foot of forested slopes and on the Kootenai River, which from here is navigable to Nelson in British Columbia. Fishing is excellent in the river east of the town. Bonners Ferry has its own municipal power plant, as well as the air of a place that is thriving and knows it.
