Littleport photos

The unincorporated village of Littleport is in Cox Creek township, on the banks of the Volga River, nine miles from Elkader and twelve miles from Volga City. Following the May 1999 flood that devistated the town, residents reluctantly voted on a buy-out and the remaining buildings were demolished.

The five photos below are undated, taken following one of the many times the village was flooded. Bart Hamlett has contributed the photos with the hope someone will be able to date them. Snow on the hill-sides & along the streets/sidewalks, and the leafless trees, probably indicate this flood occurred during a winter thaw or early spring.
