From Reno, Nevada...

Item # 209232 RENO WEEKLY GAZETTE, Reno, Washoe County, Nevada, 1879 The masthead includes a nice engraving showing the Sierra Nevada mountains which surround this picturesque city and an inset with some buildings (see photo). This is an 8 page newspaper which features news on the front page as well as many inside pages but with a wealth of various Western-themed ads as well, several of which are illustrated. Now a gambling mecca not far from Lake Tahoe, during the 1870's it was a mining town. This issue was never bound nor trimmed and is in very nice condition. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you receive will have a similar look and will be dated 1879. Previous to our recent purchase issues from Reno were extremely difficult to obtain.
