I recently posted some postcards from Carson City, Nevada (link) and got a comment from Scott Schrantz. He runs a website called The Western Nevada Historic Photo Collection. This site has many historic photos and postcards, some of which are shown below. Go take a look at Scott's site, the link is below. Great Americana!
Downtown Carson City seems focused mainly on the wonderful sign on the south side of the Marjorie May Restaurant.
Dorothy's Auto Court was somewhere on north Carson Street, probably along "motel row" in the vicinity of Long Street.
This look at downtown Carson in the 1940s reveals many of the downtown businesses of the time.
Downtown Carson is perfectly framed among the trees in this view from the Capitol plaza. This photo looks north across Musser Street in the 1940s.
