Thanks for asking! It appears that the linked image is an 1898 photograph by F.A. Rinehart, titled 'Chinese Village.' It is part of the Omaha Public Library collection - in fact, we have a higher-quality scan of the same photograph at http://digital.omahalibrary.org/ Links to the image/citation: http://www.omahapubliclibrary.org/transmiss/research/cleanhtml/tmi00120.html and image: http://www.omahapubliclibrary.org/transmiss/rinehart/tmi00120.jpeg

You are welcome to use the .jpeg images from our online collections freely, with credit to Omaha Public Library. If you need a higher-resolution TIFF for your presentation, we can provide one. (For educational use without publication, we offer such images at no charge. Full details of our policies and fee schedules are available here.) To request a high-res image, reply here or email research@omahalibrary.org with the information above plus the image ID TMI00120. 

Thanks again for using AskOPL! I encourage you to browse through our other Trans-Mississippi images in case you find other content that may be useful for your presentation, and don't hesitate to call 402-444-4825 for further assistance.
