Throwback Thursday: Outdoor Picnic

It’s a Thanksgiving themed #throwback from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a black and white postcard from the early 1900s featuring a group of men, women, and children having a picnic.

This image was captured by John Nelson and is published by History Nebraska.

History Nebraska digitized content from the John Nelson collection. John Nelson was born in Sweden and came to Nebraska at 17 years old alongside his parents. His photos show small town life in Nebraska during the early 20th century. He shot photographs of local businesses, community activities, and automobiles.

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 for more information.
