Joe and Ron are back by popular demand. This exciting lecture will give you a presentation and photos of the Comstock from the 1930’s up to the 1960’s.  The Ron and Joe Show will be featuring a more modern era of Comstock History dating from the 1930’s to 1960s; It was an interesting period predating the advent of the Bonanza TV series which opened the renaissance of modern Virginia City tourism.
