This historical photograph was captured by photographer John Vachon in 1938. It transports us back to the streets of Omaha, Nebraska. The image showcases a row of classic cars, all parked at an angle, creating a mesmerizing repetition of cars and meters that gives the photo an almost abstract quality and also suggests a busy urban setting.
Across the street, prominent establishments such as Woolworths and Metropolitan Drugstore can be seen, providing a glimpse into the vibrant commercial life of the city during that era. This photo not only captures the charm of vintage automobiles but also offers a nostalgic view of the bustling streets and iconic businesses of Omaha in the 1930s.
