Postcard images, including views of 1881 courthouse:

These photos were taken September 6, 2008 at about 5:20 p.m. This was toward the end of a group of counties in north central Iowa, with two more counties afterwards. This courthouse has the strong lines of WPA era buildings, but I especially like the map of Floyd county in the stone work above the entry.
