Fantastic Find: Iowa Digital Library presents: Iowa Counties Historic Atlases

This is a rich collection of Iowa county atlases. Some types of information available in these little treasures are images of prominent citizens, land ownership maps, directories, and advertisements.

An example of some citizens of Black Hawk County, c. 1910.  Break out the 1910 US Census and you can match picture to name. Note that some of the portraits are of people who died decades before.
Citizens of Cedar Falls City and Township, p. 150, from Atlas of Black Hawk County, Iowa 

For anyone with ancestors in Iowa.
