[Clearwater, Nb. ca. 1900]. Thirteen original photographs, varying sizes but most approximately 3.5 x 5 inches. Small oblong album, with string-tied paper covers.

A charming group of thirteen original images of Clearwater, Nebraska, from about the turn of the 20th century. Surrounded by farm lands in northeastern Nebraska, the town began in earnest when the Chicago & Northwestern built a railroad depot on the site in 1881. From a population of just over 200 in 1900, the town has boasted a relatively steady group of approximately 400 residents since World War II. The images here show several views of the town, the namesake creek, and the photographer's home during winter, as well as views of boating and carriage excursions. Relatives of the compiler owned the nearby Marwood Ranch, and there are images of their cattle operations and some of the old and new architecture on the property. From the context of the subjects of several photographs and their captions, the photographer was apparently a local woman. At any rate, these images comprise an appealing and informative record for this very small Nebraska town.
