Isabel Bloom lived in Davenport, Iowa and trained at the Vogue School of Fashion and Design. She also attended the Chicago Art Institute and in the early 1930's attended Grant Wood's Stone City Art Colony in central Iowa. Today, the sculpting and design of the figurines rests in the talented hands of artist Donna Young. Donna has helped preserve the iconic style that survived Isabel's passing in 2001. Shops are available in Moline, Illinois and Davenport, Iowa.

The Col Ballroom, Davenport, IA. Some of the best have performed here. Jimi Hendrix, Les Brown, Johnny Cash, Duke Ellington, Harry James, Guy Lombardo, Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Ray Vaughan, just to name a few. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. We go here for parties, concerts & stuff. The inside looks like something out of the 1950's. You can really feel the history in here, especially when standing on the stage. All across the back is a large balcony.

Lagomarcino's - Sit in an old fashioned mahogany booth with a milk glass table and watch flavored fountain cokes, ice cream sodas and sundaes being made. Munch on our baked ham sandwich on our homemade Swedish rye bread and top it off with our hot fudge sundae (“Just maybe the best hot fudge in this solar system or any other.” Jane and Michael Stern - Roadfood). Our vanilla ice cream is served in a glass sundae dish with the hot fudge in a little pitcher so you can drizzle it as you like.

Take a trip back in time and visit our authentic soda fountain.

From the beginning, chiropractic has been the target of misrepresentation and illegal discrimination. Colorful Personalities The Palmers of Davenport, Iowa discovered and developed many of the principles of chiropractic. Both D.D. Palmer and son B.J. Palmer were flamboyant and charismatic. Their personalities and dogmatism produced vehement detractors.
