Souvenir of Cuba City

This postcard, postmarked 1910, combines several great shots of Cuba City, including one image that may puzzle residents. The sender of this postcard jokes to his friend that "the lake we have here is something swell."

First National Bank under construction

An early aerial photograph of Cuba City, taken from the water tower, captures the First National Bank under construction. The bank, visible at the bottom left of the photo, was built in 1907. It would later become Cuba City State Bank.
