Waterloo Wednesday



Another sunny day is here for the snow to melt, followed by a possible blizzard! For all of those cooped up in this blizzard, take the opportunity to look at these nice Waterloo images on Flickr. There are great images of the Sullivan Brothers and National Dairy Cattle Congress, as well as trucks taking hogs into Rath’s. The postcard of the Black Hawk County Courthouse reminds me of the photos my grandmother took shortly before it was torn down. If we don’t get the blizzard, it might be a good time to visit The Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum.
