Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!
This week, we have a 9 1/2″ x 7 3/4″ black and white photograph of the McKinley Library Club standing on the school’s front steps in April of 1914. McKinley School was located at 230 S. 15th Street in Lincoln, Nebraska. It was constructed in 1902 for a cost of $35,319.50. It was used as an elementary school up until 1915. After, it became a “special school with grades 1-9 with prevocational and evening classes.”
This #throwback is published and owned by Lincoln Public Schools. Historical materials related to Lincoln Public Schools have been collected and saved in various sites. Over the past 15 years, the Library Media Services Department made a deliberate attempt to collect, preserve, and archive the history of LPS.
Check out this collection and many more on the Nebraska Memories archive.
