Nevada Appeal at 150: Aug. 17, 1967: Carson’s first school signs placed

A modern traffic sign, one of two presented to the Ormsby County School District by the Carson-Tahoe Independent Insurance Agents, is shown shortly after its installment at Fritsch Elementary School with insurance representative Ed Thomas, left, and Ormsby County Sheriff Robert Humphrey. The sheriff said the signs “meet all the lawful requirements and won’t restrict drivers.” The signs have a moveable face, switching from 15 mph during school hours, to 25 mph at other times.
