Clark, the arch still exists as part of the Charley Western Trail http://bridgehunter.com/ia/floyd/bh55120/ , and I just edited the video so people can just click "Play on YouTube" to go directly to the video.

First, what is the concrete arch at 4:00 and second, is this online so it can be linked in the "Sources" section? (Some of the other video might be interesting.)

Sorry, the uploader doesn't appear to have anything else of the CCW.

This video is priceless. Our Facebook group, "You might be from Charles City if U remember when....?", has enjoyed seeing this video of our town from it's 'better' days! Are there more videos we could see from the same source?
