We publish this book in honor of Nevada's 150th birthday -- which is October 31, 2014. But Nevada's sesquicentennial celebration will last much longer than a day, and this publication is one of many ways we can celebrate our heritage.
This book also pays homage to our Nevada Historical Calendar, because the 150 images showcased here are the most intriguing and memorable from 36 years of calendars (1978-2013). We carefully scanned and edited the photos to preserve their original attributes. We know you will enjoy this nine-decade journey through the different eras that shaped Nevada and helped create the state we know and love today. From 1870s Virginia City to 1950s Las Vegas, this book illustrates Nevada's rise from a sparsely populated mining mecca into a world-renowned tourist destination.
