These early twentieth century pieces of a bygone era are a part of Mid-America's transportation history. I have yet to determine exactly if they are directly related to the horsecar or the streetcar industry of early Council Bluffs Iowa. I do know they are all pre-Korean war and presumably pre-WW2. Most of the blurred information available lends itself to the years between 1917 and 1952. Please feel free to ask any questions or request more pictures as I am in no way an expert in this field. In my opinion the condition is Excellent - Near Mint. Serial numbers of the tickets included: 001989, 002748, 003543, 003569, 007165 and 007668. Stops available at that time included - AK-SAR-BEN, Benson, Dodge, SO. 32, Flo. 13 (Florence), 24XT, So. Omaha, Ban. Lake (Bancroft), 30XT, 52XT, Arbor, Vinton L. (Lake), Blondo, S. Grand, Bridge, Dundee and No. 45. Other available routes and stops included: from garage to garage, Smelter steps to Main Broadway, No. 2 Council Bluffs, Harrison, Fifth Avenue, North Broadway, South First 28th Avenue and West Graham.
