A Dirty, Wicked Town

Did you know? “Omaha” means “people above a stream.” In the 19th century, citizens dumped human waste and everything else into this stream because Omaha didn’t have a working sewer system until 1895. Did you know? An estimated 50% of adult males had venereal disease. And in 1910, Omaha had nearly 100 brothels! Life in the 21st Century has improved somewhat…

Bristow’s rollicking chronicle of early Omaha is a fun-filled ride full of fascinating facts and stories. Dirty, Wicked Town is a modern classic and well worth a first or second read.
