Readers invited to contribute historic photos

The Nevada Appeal and Nevada State Museum are partnering to create an heirloom book featuring photos from the city's past.

The photos will be featured in a hard-bound coffee table book called, "Remember When: Celebrating the History of Carson City 1858-1940."

They are asking residents to share old pictures from 1858 through 1940 taken in the Carson City area.

"What's so interesting about this book is that we are inviting the community to bring in their old photos of people and places from the early years of Carson City to be included," said Lynette Cameron, marketing director for the Nevada Appeal. "We hope people in the community want to contribute to this book, which will be out just in time for the holidays."

They can be family photos, school portraits, street scenes, events and any other moments of life captured on film.

Anyone wishing to share a photo can bring it in during two scanning sessions this week at the Nevada State Museum, 600 N. Carson St.

The first will be 3-6 p.m. Thursday and the second

10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. All photos will be returned unharmed.

For more information, call Cameron at 881-1245.
