The Nugget: 1964

The Nugget: 1964

        The NUGGET has earned the reputation of being Carson City's "Monte Carlo," because it features a complete Casino with the most generous slot machines in Nevada, and has excellent bars and the finest food served anywhere on the continent.

January 1964. "Carson City, Nevada." The latest dispatch from Don Cox takes us to the intersection of Carson and Spear, home of the Nugget Casino. View full size.

Expanded Nugget

This is when the place had grown to about twice its original size. I grew up about three short blocks to the left of here on the corner of Minnesota and Spear. Just the other morning I had breakfast with some friends in the even-larger Nugget that is unrecognizable from the image shown here. Thanks for the nice picture of the place in the time when I'd just graduated high school.

What stays is your money

I know this photograph is in Carson City, but the Cadillac reminds me of an old saying: I arrived in Vegas in a $5,000 Cadillac ... and left in a $30,000 Greyhound bus.

Like Night and Day

This is one of the few casinos that looked as colorful in the daytime as it did at night.


Man, I want to win that '64 Rambler station wagon!
