It’s time for another “Throwback Thursday”, a weekly column that takes a look back in time at some of the well-known people and places of Ottumwa. The goal of this pictorial column is to allow readers to take a walk down memory lane. Photos used will show people, places, and events from Ottumwa’s past. Readers are also invited to get involved. Please feel free to share any relevant pictures with us and you just might see it published online. Contact us through any of our social media outlets or email, just make sure to tag the pictures with #throwbackthursday or #tbt.
