Last time I discussed two circa 1908 postcards on Reno Nevada so now I want to move forward 40 years and look at the downtown area and the gambling establishments that were in their infancy. The description printed on the back says this is a late 1940s view of Casino Row in "The Biggest Little City in the World". On the left is the Herz Jewelry store and on the right is the First National Bank, Harrahs Club, Frontier, the Nevada Club, the Reno Club and Harolds Club. A little further down the street is the famous "RENO' sign stretching across the Virginia Street. This is a newer chrome postcard but the view is vintage 1940s. The area seems like a good location for the jewelry store and bank. These older casino postcards are good sellers and they are very reasonable. This postcard is available in my Nevada listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.

CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! It is a great hobby, not a gamble.
