Visiting Omaha’s Alcohol Plant


On Monday, July 9, 1951, vacationing from Muscatine in Osceola with his family, Dale wrote, “Went to Omaha with Louie, Jack, and Biscuits Bailey.  Louie sold 20 head of steers at $425 each.  I went to the alcohol plant for two hours and visited.”  Louie was Helen’s brother and Jack was Louie’s son-in-law.  I don’t know who Biscuits Bailey was, but he had a great nickname.  Above is the Omaha Alcohol Plant in 1947, to the immediate right of a long white building (part of the city power plant).
