Welcome to Tampico, Illinois
Postmaster Darby and other Mail Carriers
Prophetstown is about 14 miles from Tampico. 
What a spectacular event this must have been!

This photo taken from the Tampico Centennial Year Book 1975. No date on photo.  There is a typo on Mr. Olson's name.  It should be Boline Olson, Rt. #1 Rural Carrier.
