Overview

From its beginnings as a frontier military post on the Missouri River, through its years as a transportation and meatpacking center, to its present role as a home to Fortune 500 companies, Omaha has always been a city of opportunity, growth, and change. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Omaha, Jeffrey Spencer provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Omaha. Remembering Omaha captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the muddy streets of a cattle town to the bustling thoroughfares of a modern metropolis, these images tell a story of transportation and commerce, of churches and schools, of wars and disasters. With more than a hundred historic photographs reproduced in vivid black-and-white, Remembering Omaha captures the momentous events and everyday life of two centuries of Americans building a unique and vibrant city.
