Walgreens - Lincoln, Nebraska

1301 O Street - Built in 1948, this fantastic art deco buildings was one of the first things I noticed when I got downtown and couldn't wait to photograph it.  Sadly no amount of whatever the original interior might have looked like remains.  Inside is just your standard Walgreens.

4H Building - Lincoln, Nebraska

Located at the former Nebraska state fairgrounds.  Built in 1931, this building is supposed to be restored for use in the new Nebraska Innovation Campus.  I really would have liked to have been able to go inside and explore.  I found an open window but not big enough for me to get through and I wouldn't have gone in by myself anyway.

I believe the two metal cylinders were once part of a light fixture.  They would have had a glass tube between them.

This was through an open window and wasn't very interesting as it was just the area behind the bleachers.  I would love to have seen inside the main exhibition hall.
