About This Image

The image in this postcard (c. 1910) shows the Mason City Band traveling in style in a bus manufactured by the Overland Automobile Company of Terre Haute, Indiana. The photograph was taken in front of an apartment building located on the northwest corner of 2nd St NW and N Federal Avenue. As the 2013 photo update reveals, the exterior of the apartment building is in remarkably good shape on hundred years later. At the time I visited the site in the fall of 2013, many of the old buildings in the area had been or were being rehabilitated.
