Throwback Thursday: A to Z Dress Shop
It’s time for another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!
This week, we have a 4″ x 5″ acetate negative of the interior of A to Z Dress Shop, located in David City. This image is part of the Boston Studio Project.
The Boston Studio Collection consists of over 68,000 negatives that record life in and around David City, Nebraska from 1893 to 1979. Harvey Boston, a professional photographer in David City, owned a portrait studio business from 1893 until his death in 1927. The business was later run by his daughter Edith Boston Proskovec and then by his son-in-law Audrey Hurlbert, before being sold in 1973.
Check out this collection and many more on the Nebraska Memories archive.
The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in Nebraska Memories, see http://nlc.nebraska.gov/nebraskamemories/participation.aspx for more information.
