This week’s #ThrowbackThursday features a 3-5/8″ x 4-3/4″ black and white acetate negative of the Orpheum Theatre in 1940.
This photo is part of the William Wentworth Collection provided by The Durham Museum. The collection consists of 4663 negatives of images that document life in Omaha, Nebraska from 1934 to 1950. William Wentworth worked as both a freelancer and a commercial photographer, providing a unique view of architecture, businesses, and community life in Omaha.
