Most of us are familiar with the modern day Reno Nevada so I want to show you a couple of views of the town as it appeared around 1908. The first view is a circa 1908 E. C. Kropp postcard showing the entrance to the University of Nevada with with the campus and two of the large buildings in the background.

The next view is also a circa 1908 postcard by the Pacific Novelty Company and gives us a great downtown view along Virginia Street. Starting in the foreground, the signs that can be read are Hudson Electrical Company, The Grand Theater, Mecca and then the Martin Block which is made up of the three red buildings in the center of the view and the middle one of these is a drug store. The photo and printing quality of both of these post cards are excellent which adds to their appeal and value. Both of these postcards are available in my Nevada listings along with 10,000 additional postcards on my website Moody's Postcards.

CATCH POSTCARD FEVER!! See towns and institutions in their infancy.
