Source Caption: I recently ran across this photo of downtown Reno dated May 9, 1868. I haven't seen this photo before so I thought I would share it. S. Virginia and First looking south. photo credit unknown. Central Pacific officials looked ahead of the eastward progress of railroad construction to select a site for a station in western Nevada. Myron Lake’s vast acreage on both sides of his bridge looked suitable. Early in March 1868 Charles Crocker of the Central Pacific got together with Lake; ultimately the latter offered to deed 80 acres of land to the railroad if it would build its depot within the town site limits.
