Throwback Thursday: Preparing a Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving and #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a 3-5/8″ x 4-3/4″ black and white acetate negative. It features two women in a kitchen preparing a turkey. This image was created by William Wentworth and is owned by The Durham Museum.

The William Wentworth collection at The Durham Museum consists of over 4,500 negatives. These images document life in Omaha, Nebraska from the 1930s through 1950. William Wentworth worked as both a freelancer and commercial photographer. He provided unique views of architecture, businesses, and community life.
