Mabrys of Vandalia in print

Today was the official launch of Google Print.
Working with the University of Michigan, Harvard University, Stanford University, The New York Public Library, and Oxford University, Google has scanned and made searchable at least ten thousand books, with many more to follow.
As a test, I did a search for Mabry Vandalia.

The only hit was a good one: A page showing the Mabry Court Motel in Vandalia, from the book Vandalia, Illinois by Brenda Baptist Protz.

The whole book looks like an interesting overview of the history of Vandalia, with lots of photos. The bottom line is that I would have been unlikely to run across it without Google Print.
