Reno, Nevada, has had an unconventional past. Nevada has sometimes been behind the times and sometimes ahead of them in defying conventional morality. The politicians who prevailed were consistently those who spurned hypocrisy and kept the economy strong by allowing activities that were illegal elsewhere: prizefighting, gambling, uncontested divorce. Reno, the largest city in the state until the late 1950s, took advantage of the lax political environment to become an urban playground. But Reno was also the home of ordinary people merchants, railroad workers, university students and professors, families. The city's two cultures rarely intersected.
Historic Photos of Reno captures the flavor of both sides of the city's personality. Included are images of the businesses, the buildings, and the main events that marked the rise of the Biggest Little City in the World. Some of the photographs also capture the beauty of the natural environment in which Reno is situated. In stunning black-and-white photography, this handsome coffee-table book offers a compelling look into Reno s past that will appeal to newcomers and longtime residents alike.

I played with some long exposure and my remote outside the motel in Reno....and invested in a better tripod the next day!

The light trails in this pic were from a semi tractor that went in the street right in front of me, can anyone explain why you only see the light trails????
Welcome to Reno!
Welcome to Reno!
Since I got back, everyone keeps asking me if I won any money. I told them I didn't go to gamble. Their eyes widen like I'm nuts. I just went to take in the wonderful colour of the city and the sun.

Nevada's Golden Age of Gambling - 2010 Edition
Let author Al W. Moe take you on a fifty-year trip around the Silver State's casinos! From Las Vegas, to Reno, Lake Tahoe, Winnemucca, Wendover, Ely and Carson City - the stories are all here! 1931 to 1981

Gambling is Nevada. Always was, and always will be. merciless snow. It is said the casinos can still eat you alive.

During the course of the last century Nevada transformed itself from a simple water-stop along a dry, barren stretch of open land, to the greatest gambling center the world has ever seen. Whether you head for the unbelievable spectacle of Las Vegas with its choreographed, headliner shows, megawatt neon signs and 5,000-room hotel casinos, or stroll through the more sedate streets of Reno, gambling will be constantly in sight.

By the 1950's, Harolds Club of Reno had become the most successful casino in the world, although there were large, successful, illegal clubs operating in Florida, Arkansas, Ohio and Kentucky. Meyer Lansky had a financial interest in several of the most successful illegal clubs in the United States, and he and his mob of friends would soon take their income from new clubs starting in Las Vegas. How they operated is a fascinating story - right here in "Nevada's Golden Age of Gambling."

Also between the pages of this book are stories of such well-known casino owners as Bill Harrah, "Pappy" Smith of Harolds Club, Wilbur Clark and Moe Dalitz of the Desert Inn, and dozens of other casino owners and their stories, plus of course, Howard Hughes, who presided over seven casinos in the 1960's.

If you love the casinos of Nevada, you will be amazed by stories here! Plus plenty of old casino photos.
