Lincoln, Nebraska: 1942 | Shorpy Historical Photo Archive


The thing I find so appealing about this picture is the people have the time to stop and chat with each other. No one is hurried and they seem to be enjoying themselves and each other in a way we’ve lost. Lincoln was much smaller then, about 90,000, and much closer to the farms around it than now, as can be seen.
