Coming soon: Walcott – The Early Years, 1854-1954

fred-tank-milk-delivery-copyMembers of the Walcott Historical Society recently turned the book they’ve been working on over to their printer. “Walcott – The Early Years, 1854-1954” is a spiral-bound pictorial book containing scores of historic Walcott photographs from the city’s first 100 years.

Sure to become a valued collectors’ item, the professionally printed book will sell for $25 and will be available in mid December, just in time for Christmas gift-giving. The book will be available for purchase at both Walcott Trust and Savings Bank and the Burt Clinic of Chiropractic.

It was my pleasure to volunteer my time “photo shopping” the many photographs and editing the many captions provided by Walcott Historical Society members, who worked many hours on the project.

This photo is from the Rudy Bluedorn collection. it shows Fred Tank, who delivered milk to his customers daily in this horse-drawn wagon. The building in the background was the home of the Scott County Tribune, published by Victor Bluedorn.
