Source Caption: #WaybackWednesday It's a sunny day in Carson City, but we sure could use some snow. This photo of Carson City was taken in 1918 during, or shortly after, a snowstorm. The view faces west on the Virginia & Truckee right-of-way that ran alongside the Mint on Caroline Street near the intersection with Carson Street. In the past, the V&T used this line to serve the Mint and a freight house located at the corner of Plaza Street and Caroline Street. Today, the tracks are gone and the Nevada State Museum's Dema Guinn Concourse occupies the location of Caroline Street between Curry Street and Carson Street.
