Throwback Thursday: Hot Air Balloon

Let’s get carried away with this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!

This black and white photographic postcard was created by John Nelson (1864-1942). He was born in Harestad, Sweden in 1864. He came to Nebraska with his parents when he was 17. His work tells the story of small town life in Nebraska during the beginning of the 20th century. This image published and owned by History Nebraska.
