The board has been sleeping for nine days. Time for something.... Here's a couple of pics from Reno's early glory day (50's .. 60's?).
They were black and whites and I have added some color to liven them up.

The Palace Club ( I have posted this one before but since then I've added a starry sky and other enhancements)

Good find Alison - funny, it has just a passing reference to Reno's 'Night Clubs'.

My memory had a bit of a flash and I remembered John Evanoff had several interesting posts on the Palace Club and others. This VisitReno page has his comments.

Looks as though the Palace Club photo I altered was originally a color one.
