About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

22nd Street and Capitol Avenue

The site is now a parking lot for patrons of the Joslyn Art Museum, which recently received a major gift of 20th Century photographs, including some taken by John Vachon.

Gone, but the name lives on.

Looking at Google maps (is that cheating?) shows that there is a Coronado Condominiums in Omaha but they look like they are post-1960s vintage.

The original was probably renamed or torn down.

Wonder how they got the name? Built on the location of the previous apartments, or was the developer nostalgic for the older building, a family member of the original's owner, etc.? Is there some kind of connection between Coronado and it being Omaha?
