This past Tuesday evening, June 18th, local historian and collector Merle Vastine treated the audience at the Main Street library to stories inspired by selection of images from his vast private collection as part of “True Tales of the Quad Cities: Photographic Memories.” His presentation focused on various modes of transportation in Davenport’s past, including autos, railways, streetcars, steamboats, firetrucks, and horse-and-buggy delivery vehicles. Mr. Vastine has graciously granted us permission to share the slideshow of images here on our blog. Enjoy, and stay tuned for his next visit to the DPL!
