Wordless Wednesday: Nevada City, Nevada County, California

Nevada City, California, circa 1930's

My great-grandmother's house on
10135 Coyote Street, Nevada City, CA
Nevada County Consolidated Fire Station No. 4
stands at the site now (see picture below)

These photos are from my paternal grandmother's photo album, she grew up in Nevada City, CA. The top photo is a postcard, the other was most likely taken by her of her childhood home. The house on Coyote Street is demolished and the fire station stands in it's place. My great aunt was devastated when the State of California took the property by eminent domain. My father also grew up in Nevada City, CA

Please feel free to share and leave a comment. 

Below are more pictures taken just outside Nevada City.

No problem, I thought it was a great photo. My paternal grandmother grew up there. I will post more pictures in the future.
