The Coronado: 1938

The Coronado: 1938

November 1938. "The Coronado Apartments. Omaha, Nebraska." Medium format negative by John Vachon for the Farm Security Administration. View full size.

 

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?
