Small Town Series Part 3: Alton, IA

Remember when towns had postcards of main street? A few years back I decided to photograph the main streets and a few sights around some of the small towns in Iowa. I would like to share a few of the small town photos, starting with the Alton, Iowa.
Alton is a very small community with a great deal of charm.  One thing that I really loved was the ornaments on the light poles on the main street, each signifying some part of the community.
Here is one of my favorite buildings in the town.
I thought I had brought with me a photo of the main street but I didn't so I will have to update this when I get back from vacation.

I absolutely LOVE those lamp posts! I've been taking photos of lamp posts when I see them and want to do a post on them soon!
