Throwback Thursday Photograph, 1912 Lincoln Flood

Flooding at 12th and O Streets in Lincoln, 1912 (RG2158-24-7)

The Capitol City saw a fair amount of rain this week, but not quite as much as these two motorcyclists in 1912. They braved the flood waters up to their handlebars in downtown Lincoln at the corner of 12th and O Streets. Visible behind them are the Security Mutual Life Building, Prescott Music Company and Union Coal.
