Aerial photo of the Council Bluffs City Water Works, looking north from Avenue Q; North 25th Street runs from the bottom center of the photo to the Missouri River at the top center.

Today...instead of a "gate house" the City Water Works has a full scale pumping station on the same site, known as Glendale pumping station. Paving, sidewalks, and houses along the avenue have changed the picture greatly in 70 years.

Council Bluffs Changing Scene--In 1881, at the head of Glen Ave., and just under the Glendale reservoir, stood the "gate house." The small brick building housed the valve control that took care of water from the reservoir of the City Water Works.
