DOWNTOWN OMAHA

Douglas, looking east from 16th Street


Looking east down Douglas Street from 16th we see people on foot, in carriages, and in streetcars, but not in automobiles. The conical topped building with the flag on top is the Continental Block located at the northeast corner of 15th & Douglas which provided office space for various businesses.
