    Wells, Fargo & Co.: 1867 Omaha Carte-de-Visite. Omaha was the Eastern starting point of the transcontinental railroad which was completed in 1869. The eastern section of the line was constructed by the Union Pacific Railroad. This CDV shows Omaha as it appeared in 1867. The image shows one of the main thoroughfares in town with buildings lined on either side. The back has three rubber-stamps of Wells, Fargo & Co., all dated September 1867. It also contains a description of the photo, in full: " View of Farnham St. Omaha Neb. Looking towards the Missouri River. Taken about May 1867. W. F. & Co. office in black with pinhole. Building in fore-ground with 4 chimnies is the Court-House." No doubt a rare image, it is also in great condition.
