Omaha was transformed as it played host to the Trans-Mississippi International Exposition in the Summer of 1898. The huge success of recent World’s Fairs was behind the motivation of the creation of this event. Nearly 2 million people came from far and near to explore the Exposition from June through October which included exhibits, a midway, amazing buildings and architecture, music, photography, notable speakers, the assembly of Native American Tribes and dozens of other events and special attractions. What DIDN’T they have at the Exposition is really the question?
This video photo gallery features the Colorized Photographs by the official photographer of the Trans-Mississippi Exposition, F. A. Rinehart, published by the Detroit Photographic Company in 1898.
