Winnemucca 1915 & 1956

The University of Nevada Digital Conservancy has some amazing stuff in it's collection. I just found these amazing old photos of Winnemucca. The one above of downtown is from 1915 but other pictures are from the 1800s!

Compare the above to this photo from almost the exact same place only 41 years later.

Funnily enough I can't seem to find a modern image from about the same place.

The UNR Digital Conservancy really is worth a look. You can use their search to find whatever interests you.
