Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!
This week, we have a 5″ x 3 1/” black and white photograph featuring the Arlington Hotel in Rising City, Nebraska. This hotel stood at the northwest corner of Main Street, north of the railroad tracks. It was razed in 1918. The Morgan Garage was built in its place.
This week’s image is published and owned by Rising City Community Library. Images in this collection include photographs of businesses on Main Street, the depot, church , post office, and portraits of the Rising family.
Check out this collection and more on the Nebraska Memories archive.

Basketball season is in full swing and we’re celebrating with this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!
In this week’s 8″ x 10″ black and white acetate negative, we have two young women, in basketball uniforms, putting on makeup. This image was taken by William Wentworth in the early-to-mid 1900s. He worked as both a freelancer and a commercial photographer, providing a unique view of architecture, businesses, and community life in Omaha.
This image is owned and published by The Durham Museum. This collection consists of 4663 negatives of images that document life in Omaha, Nebraska from 1934 through 1950. Check it out on the Nebraska Memories archive!
