Throwback Thursday: Cats in the Library

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday is just purr-fect!

This week, we have a black and white lantern slide featuring William Wallace’s cats, Nicholas and Deborah! The two cats are seen in the library of the Wallace residence licking from a bowl on the floor.

This photo was created by William Wallace. He was a vice president of Omaha National Bank, as well as the president of the Omaha Library Board. This image is published and owned by Omaha Public Library. The items from Omaha Public Library featured on the Nebraska Memories archive include early Omaha-related maps dating from 1825 to 1922, as well as over 1,100 postcards and photographs of the Omaha area.
