Postcard images, including vintage views of 1885 courthouses at Avoca and Council Bluffs:

These photos were taken September 28, 2008 near 8:30 a.m. We left early in the morning to get photos in the southwest corner of Iowa, but had to wait until later in the morning for the fog to lift! We had great morning light on the east entrance, and shadow on the west entrance.
Photos of Avoca Courthouse were taken March 14, 2009 near 9:30 a.m. The courthouse faces west.
