Today's title comes straight off the post card I am featuring. This great 1908 E. C. Kropp postcard shows three beautiful horses surrounded by lots of folks looking on. Elk Horn was incorporated in 1901 and was the center of Danish immigration in the mid 19th century. The 1910 census shows a population of 750 and the 2000 census placed the population at 649. Despite the large buildings in the background, I was unable to find mention of a college there at any time so this was probably a field trip for some hands on experience with the town's people looking on. You can find this postcard in my Iowa listings and 10,000 more post cards on my website at Moody's Postcards.
