I was intrigued by this store in Ely with its art-deco signage. The store is on the Lincoln Highway on Aultman Street, the main drag. That’s the Nevada Hotel in background with the flag flying on the roof. (Please click on the photo to enlarge it.)
“The Garnet Mercantile is Nevada’s only Community Owned full service department store. Founded in 2004, it replaced JCPenney which closed in 2003 after 90 years of operation in Ely. ” – from the Garnet Mercantile website.
So the store was built the same year that the Lincoln Highway was dedicated, 1913, and it is still operating as a general mercantile today.
Safe travels everyone,
