Reno was first known as a mid-nineteenth century mining town, owing to Nevada's ample supply of silver and gold. Over the next hundred years, the city became an urban playground, notorious for a lax political environment that encouraged unconventional activities such as prizefighting, gambling, and uncontested divorce. Historic Photos of Reno tells the story of Reno's development through nearly 200 archival black-and-white photographs. Author Donneyln Curtis transports the reader through the city's history, illustrating how a sleepy mining community grew into the "biggest Little City in the World.
