Bridge Street, Winnemucca, Nevada

This image shows a typical day on Bridge Street, looking towards the distant mountains near the town of Winnemucca, Nevada. Based on the location of the theater shown in the picture, this is a view of Bridge Street from about the same viewpoint as it looks ltoday.

There is no description on the back of this card.

The movie theater marquee on the right side of the street indicates that the current film is “Kill the Umpire” starring William Bendix. This film was released in mid-1950, which conclusively dates this photo to the 1950s.

Holliday’s Gas Station, Highway 40, Nevada

This image shows the gas station and associated market and bar known as Holliday’s which was located on Highway 40 between Winnemucca and Battle Mountain, Nevada. Over time, this highway would be upgraded to Interstate 80, and many of these establishments were left with no convenient access to the travelers passing by.

This image is of the same building as the one on the right in the previous posting, showing the building from close up and from the opposite side. It appears they were vendors of 76 brand fuel, and sold Pennzoil products as well.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.

Holliday’s Desert Oasis, Highway 40, Nevada

This image shows the gas station and associated shop known as Holliday’s, along with another unidentified building in the center. There appears to be a windmill attached to the far side, presumably as a water pump. It is a later construction, based on the photo linked above.
