NEVADA CITY NUGGET - 100 YEARS of NEVADA COUNTY
"Nevada County's Biggest Little Newspaper"
Special Edition - 1851-1951
Nevada County. California

This extremely rare publication is from the now defunct Nevada City Nugget Newspaper
from Nevada County in Northern California. This special edition represents stories, articles and information accumulated by The Nugget in the late 40's, early 50's, which appeared in the weekly edition of the Nugget.

136 pages of glorious history of the region, including classic vintage advertisements from the era. The phone numbers are so old that an advertisement for the National Hotel in Nevada City has a phone number of "2". This gem is put together in a booklet format, with 136 pages full of history and past stories from the area around Nevada County. In the front of the book it highlights many of the administrative people who were running the county back in the early 1950's (Earl Warren was Governor, Howard Johnson was State Senator and Truman was president by the way!)
.
The pages are newspaper type paper, and have yellowed over the last 70 years. There are some cat ears on pages towards the back, and wear as it has been stored away for decades. This was found in a box of old artifacts from my grandfather who used to be the head of Fish and Game in California back in the day, perhaps he got it as a gift.

Between pages 112-113 there is a small flower/bush clipping that was preserved between the pages, and I'm leaving it in there as it's probably 70 years old as well. See second to last photo.

Selling this in hope that someone from Nevada County, or with a historical interest in the area finds it. It would take a few pages to list all the great stories in this special edition, but I'm sure you'll find it worth the investment!
