Joe explains his lecture: My parents moved to Virginia City in 1958 when they bought a building and opened a museum dedicated to the history of life on the Comstock. I grew up amidst the museum and became infatuated (no, fanatical) with the history of this area and began collecting all the old photos I came across for the remainder of my life….at least to this point.
I will be presenting my personal collection of photos of what WAS there and some of what is in that place now. Photos you have likely never seen before. Naked buildings with all their outer wear removed. What happened to the hundreds of buildings that were on the Comstock? The nature of their demise. This lecture will give you so answers. So, the next time you walk down the street in Virginia City you will have a whole new feel of what you would have been walking past in the 1880’s or so.
