Throwback Thursday: Capitol Ave. Park

It’s time for another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a late 1800s black and white photograph of Capitol Avenue Park, looking west.

This image was created by George Heyn. It is owned and published by Omaha Public Library. The items in this collection include early Omaha-related maps dating from 1825 to 1922. Over 1,100 postcards and photographs of the Omaha are are also featured.

Are you someone who likes history? If so, check out the Nebraska Memories archive! It’s a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural materials and make them available to researchers of all ages.

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.
