RENO EVENING GAZETTE, Nevada, Oct. 10, 1877

* Wild old West

An early issue from this famous gambling city in Northern Nevada near Lake Tahoe. Gold was discovered in nearby Virginia City in 1850 and a modest mining community developed, but the discovery of silver in 1859 at the Comstock Lode led to a mining rush, and thousands of emigrants left their homes bound for the West, hoping to find a fortune.
Various news of the day with a great wealth of ads.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, nice condition.
