Throwback Thursday: Pilot

Look what we found on the Nebraska Memories archive!

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday features a black and white photograph of a male pilot standing next to an airplane.

This early 1900s image is published and owned by History Nebraska.

It was created by John Nelson. Born in Sweden in 1864, John Nelson came to Nebraska with his parents when he was seventeen. His photographs document small town life in Nebraska during the first few decades of the twentieth century. His subjects include businesses, community activities, and early automobiles.

See more of his work 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 for more information.
