Throwback Thursday: Mechanic

It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another Throwback!

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday features an early 1900s image of a mechanic working on an automobile in the G.W. Morgan Garage in Spalding, Nebraska.

This image was created by John Nelson. It is published and owned by History Nebraska. John Nelson was born in Harestad, Sweden, in 1864. He came to Nebraska with his parents when he was 17. His photos tell the story of life in small town Nebraska during the first decades of the 20th century. He captured local businesses, community activities, and early automobiles.
