Old Omaha

These images are of my family members and their friends who lived in Omaha area and Sarpy County in the around 1911. The images were produced by photographing the original glass negatives backlit on a light table and then inverting in photoshop.


The images in this project were achieved by photographing illuminated glass negatives and then digitally reversing the images from negatives to positives. All of the glass negatives, to my knowledge were made by my grandfather Joseph M. Burns from the late 1800’s until around 1911
