What town is this again?
Carol Aird: This? Waterloo.
Carol Aird: Isn't that awful?
At the western end of their road trip, Carol's Packard passes a sign with a Napoleonic image with "Welcome to Waterloo, Population 12,000". Later Carol and Therese laugh at the small town they have found themselves in. Waterloo, which does not employ any imagery of Napoleon, was the fifth-largest city in Iowa, with a population of 65,000, as per the 1950 census. Knowing Carol's penchant for finer hotels, the pair would have likely stayed downtown overlooking the river, rather than a rural motel.
