Throwback Thursday: Automobile

Happy #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

This week, we have a 5″ x 7″ nitrate negative of an automobile and garage owned by Wade Croft in David City, Nebraska. The car is in the process of being re-painted.

This image was created by Edith Proskovec (Boston). It is owned by the Thorpe Opera House Foundation and is part of the Boston Studio Project. The Boston Studio Collection consists of over 68,000 negatives that record life in and around David City, Nebraska from 1893 to 1979. Harvey Boston, a professional photographer in David City, owned a portrait studio business from 1893 until his death in 1927. The business was later run by his daughter Edith Boston Proskovec and then by his son-in-law Audrey Hurlbert, before being sold in 1973.

Check out the full collection on the Nebraska Memories archive.
