Downtown Reno Photos

Today Sammy and I took a stroll around downtown Reno. I had some specific pictures in mind that I wanted to take for a story I’m putting together for Around Carson, but along the way I found plenty more to snap pictures of. So I gathered a bunch of those impromptu pictures and put them up on Flickr, in a Downtown Reno photo set. I’ve got plenty of landmarks in there, like the river and the arch, but soon I got off the main strip and started snapping pictures of the old, run-down motels that are sitting a couple of blocks off Virginia Street.

El Ray and Reno Motels

City Center Motel

Reno Motel

In-Town Motel

Go look at the whole set. There are lots of junky motels that deserve to be torn down, with cool old signs that deserve to be saved. The motels, I have no doubt, will eventually fall to the wrecking ball. In fact, one of them is in the process of coming down now. But the signs will either go with them, or be removed and locked up somewhere. But we’ll always have the pictures.

And keep your eye on Around Carson. I should have the real pictures, the ones I went to Reno to get, up soon.

    No pictures of the courthouse of the post office? I really think that the architecture of those buildings in itself deserves the photo! 🙂
