Biggest Little City: 1972

Biggest Little City: 1972

Reno, Nevada in the summer of 1972. Two blocks down Virginia St. from the corner of First we see the second version of the "Reno Arch," this one installed in 1963 and replaced with the current one in 1987. This is another Kodachrome slide from a small trove we recently found at my friend's house. This time you'll look in vain for me in funny clothes, because I wasn't along on this trip.

Little Mystery Solved

If I ever knew there was a Waldorf Restaurant in the middle of town, I forgot. About sixteen blocks north on Virginia Street there is a restaurant/bar called The Little Waldorf. I wondered about the "little" from time to time. So the Waldorf in the picture must be the Big Waldorf.
