The Last Roundup: 1938

The Last Roundup: 1938

November 1938. "Entrance to Union Stockyards. Omaha, Nebraska." Medium format negative by John Vachon, Farm Security Administration. View full size.

 

Bridge is Gone!

As well as the stockyards! Only the brick building visible through the bridge remains, restored and repurposed. Gone also is the accompanying claim to the "world's largest manure pile" which was of course disputed by Chicago! Gone also are the railroad yards which held the cattle cars and the reefers for the beef shipped both east and west. Gone also is the large icing facility in Council Bluffs which provided ice for both the meat reefers and the PFE trains from the west coast.
