Landmarks Heritage Preservation Commission

The Meyer Collection is a series of large format black and white photographs taken by Lynn Meyer between the mid -1970’s through the 1990’s. Mr. Meyer worked as a city planner for the Omaha City Planning Department and was administrator for the Landmarks Heritage Preservation Commission from 1980 to 2007.

The photographs are digital scans of 4x5 film negatives. No post production modifications or enhancements have been made to the photographs at this point. 

Therefore exposures often vary between images. Currently the photos are arranged in general categories without any detailed individual identification. The goal is to provide more detailed descriptions and photo enhancement over time.
