Elarton, John Wesley, Panoramic Photograph of Aurora, Nebraska, circa 1910

 Item — Box: P-000151, Folder: 2

Scope and Contents

Consists of a panoramic photograph depicting the central Nebraska town of Aurora, which had around 2,000 residents at the time. The image shows a somewhat dense town center, with a Gothic courthouse (completed in 1894) and town square surrounded by storefronts and houses. A few businesses can be made out from billboards or painted signs, including Cremo and Henry George 5-cent Cigar. Though the image is unsigned, photographer John Wesley Elarton (1844-1919) was living in Aurora at the time this photograph was taken, and it was likely taken by him.
