Jackpot Motel, Reno, Nevada

This is an example of a typical urban motel of the 1950s, with it’s interior parking lot, two story construction with all rooms opening on to the parking area, with forms and shapes typical of the space-age style common in that decade.

–The location has been significantly changed with the construction of Interstate 80 through the area, and the motel no longer exists. The cars visible show that this card dates from the 1950s.
