DINNER PARTY. This image records a very elaborately set table, as well as the numerous guests. The lady in the foreground is probably Eva O'Donnell, whose parents James and Susan O'Donnell resided at 623 C Street, in the South Bottoms neighborhood. The house still stands. Mr. O'Donnell was the proprietor of a "lunch stand" in downtown Lincoln.
