Local Color: Random Omaha and Council Bluffs pics

Downtown Omaha

The old Center Mall

The old Richman Gordmans/ Half Price Store in Council Bluffs

Old building ads

W.C. Franks sign at gas station in Council Bluffs
I have to look further into this. W.C. Franks was a local chain of arcades that served hot dogs that I used to go to all the time, from grade school through high school. The last one disappeared years ago (It's now a Nickle A Play arcade). So, I was a bit surprised when I looked up while filling the car and saw a W.C. Franks sign.

The old Florence post office.
