  • In celebration of Fastnacht Day, we thought it would be appropriate to run a vintage “Fasnacht” photo. Shown here is Arthur F. Fasnacht, Lincoln butcher, unloading his panel truck at a home delivery. The photo is believed to be from the mid-’40s. The butcher shop, which was located near the old Lincoln Fire Hall, was started by Arthur’s brother Elmer. Arthur then ran it for years before his son Robert took over. Review file photo
