This picture was taken just North of Sargent, Nebraska in 1886. It shows a farm family in front of their Sod House. I really am enjoying this series of pictures this week. It is easy to find lots of pictures from the Civil War, but it is hard to find many pictures from 1865 to about 1900. It is especially hard to find good candid pictures of the frontier life. These pictures really capture a lot of detail about life in that era.
