This early 1900s image is published and owned by History Nebraska.It was created by John Nelson. Born in Sweden in 1864, John Nelson came to Nebraska with his parents when he was seventeen. His photographs document small town life in Nebraska during the first few decades of the twentieth century. His subjects include businesses, community activities, and early automobiles.
