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. I would presume these to be of the 1940's - 1950's Bus or Coach era. Promoted as "I'm the BRIGHT SPOT in your Cost of Living". Please feel free to ask any questions or request more pictures as I am in no way an expert in this field.
