Historical Photographs & Postcards
of Iron County, Missouri

These 3 black and white postcards are part of a very old "SOUVENIR FOLDER OF ARCADIA VALLEY". I think these are great examples of just how the beautiful Arcadia Valley looked many years ago. They are actual photos taken by J.W. Russell of Ironton, Mo. and made into a postcard folder.

If you look closely, you will be able to see the Immanuel Lutheran Church in the foreground.  Note the old car by the Lutheran Church - this helps date the photo.
