On The Banks Of The Missouri River

On the banks of the Missouri River – there is a City called Omaha – Omaha Nebraska.

Postcard image of Omaha’s business section. The Missouri River borders
the East side of the city. Beyond is the State of Iowa with Council Bluffs in the distance. The postmark on this postcard is May 11 1952. The imprint on the card states that Omaha has a population of 223,844.

Below is a postcard mailed from Council Bluffs Iowa July 6. In pencil someone has added c. 1910. Note that the stamp coincides with that dating. I don’t have this card right to hand at the moment. Interestingly it is addressed to Cincinnati Iowa. Googling Cincinnati Iowa I find that now it is a very tiny settlement with a. population less than 1000.
