Ottumwa is a quiet, middle-America town. This is right near the river, Riverside Park.

The Des Moines River flows through Ottumwa

The Amtrak lines

The central business district

There is fine cuisine in Ottumwa, don't know the story about this particular place.

Some of the houses are quite nice. Most aren't this grand, though.

Schoolkids on a day trip. Nice to see this kind of event going on, should be able to do this everywhere, the world would be better.

The Ottumwa hydro intake. "The City of Bridges."

This was the local new car sales lot.

If you like old cars - you have to like this.

The Big Chief is taking a rest. He used to be atop the courthouse.

I just love these old cars.
