This postcard of what was Kokomo Waterworks is part of a collection of postcards that were sent to a member of local resident Terry Walker's mother’s Armstrong family in southern Miami County. Her name was Louisa (Day) Armstrong and she was born in Virginia around 1825 and passed away in 1913. Louisa is buried in Deer Creek Cemetery in southern Miami Co. Most of the postcards were from Louisa’s family members with dates between 1900 and 1912. "I have always lived in Miami County but worked at Chrysler, and if I am correct this building was on the east side of 931 somewhere around the Grotto although I am not sure what side of the Wildcat it was on," said Walker.
