Western Nevada

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.

These pictures are fantastic. Do you think Carson still holds up today or has it changed too much?

The way that tree frames the last shot makes me feel that I could walk right into that bygone age.

I found one nice color slide of some main street in Carson City, showing at least a few casinos... it's really great!

Carson City's not a small town anymore, but downtown hasn't changed as much as many other towns have. There's no on-street parking anymore, and traffic through downtown is really bad because our freeway bypass is still being built. Some of the buildings in these pictures have been torn down, but many of them are still around, mostly untouched from 50 and 60 years ago. You can still walk two blocks off downtown and reach sleepy tree-lined streets with houses dating back to the 1800s.
