It’s another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!
This week we have a 3″ x 4 3/4″ black and white photograph from 1970 of children playing on the playground at the Nebraska Children’s Home Society.
This image is published and owned by the Nebraska Children’s Home Society. Chartered in 1893, the Society founders challenged the practice of placing abandoned, abused and neglected children in orphanages and “poor houses”. NCHS Founders had a vision for a better future and believed that every child deserved a family.
