All aboard for this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!
This week, we have a 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inch black and white photograph from 1935 of “Mark Twain” the diesel train at the McCook C.B.&Q. Railroad station.
This image is published by McCook Public Library and is owned by the High Plains Historical Society and Museum. They worked together to digitize photographic images from the historical society’s collection. These images document early growth of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad in McCook, Nebraska. The collection spans from the early 1800s through the 1960s.
See the full collection on the Nebraska Memories archive.
Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in Nebraska Memories, see http://nlc.nebraska.gov/nebraskamemories/participation.aspx for more information.
