Postcard of the Day

"The Mississippi River at Davenport & Bettendorf, Iowa -- Rock Island, Moline, & East Moline, Illinois 'The Quint Cities' crested at 22.4 feet, the highest in history on April 28, 1965. The photo shows the muncipal stadium and the levee inundated with the skyline of Davenport, Iowa in the background." [strange punctuation & syntax sic]
