Description


From its beginnings as a frontier military post on the Missouri River, through its years as a transportation and meatpacking center, to its present role as a home to Fortune 500 companies, Omaha has always been a city of opportunity, growth, and change. Historic Photos of Omaha captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. In these pages are unique visual records of the city's history, presented in hundreds of historic photographs. From the muddy streets of a cattle town to the bustling thoroughfares of a modern metropolis, these images tell a story of transportation and commerce, of churches and schools, of wars and disasters. Photographs of the great Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition and Indian Congress of 1898, Boys Town, city parks, neighborhoods, and the downtown of bygone eras are all here, preserved in striking black and white images that capture historic events and everyday life of a unique and vibrant city in the heart of America.
