Postcard - Downtown Wimmemucca, Nevada - 1956

I love this postcard from Winnemucca in the 50s. Roadsidepictures has lots of great old Winnemucca postcards but this downtown scene that kocojim found is gorgeous. I wish I could have seen Winnemucca in the 50s. From what I have heard the casinos were more popular and entertainers used to perform. There was more music and dancing. It sounds kinda perfect.
Hell, maybe I would have run into my grandparents going out to a dance or a movie.
Make sure you check it out large.
