Elko Nevada Brand Restaurant in Commercial Casino SOLD

Vintage postcards of Restaurants, Hotels and Casinos are fun to collect.

Today's postcard is of the Brand Room situated in the Commercial Casino.

The following information is from the Chamber of Commerce of Elko.




The Commercial Casino is located across the street from the Stockmen's Hotel Casino in the heart of downtown Elko. The Commercial Casino is over 100 years old, and is rich in history. The Commercial was the first casino ever to offer live entertainment. 

The Commercial Casino also features the Brand Room Buffet Restaurant, which is appropriately named. Local ranchers burned their brands into the wall in the 1950's, including Bing Crosby's +B brand. 
A gigantic 10-foot polar bear stands guard inside the casino. Replicas of "White King" adorn the outside of the historic casino building.

Vintage Postcard Minneapolis Minnesota Nankin Chinese Restaurant

Among my vintage postcards is this one of Nankin Chinese Restaurant in Minneapolis Minnesota

Post card is colorful and shows inside interior pictures plus the outside door area

Offered since 1919 Chinese American Food




The following is part of an article written by Rick Nelson of the Star Tribune which was updated

February 25, 1999

Walter James founded the restaurant in 1919 at 14 S. 7th St., now the site of the Dayton-Radisson 

parking ramp. He opened a second Nankin in downtown Chicago in 1933, where it stayed for 15 years

before moving to suburban Skokie. In 1949, James sold the Minneapolis Nankin to the Golden and 

Chalfen families, which also had interests in Holiday on Ice and the Minneapolis Lakers

 basketball team.

The Nankin moved across the street to 15 S. 7th St. in the late 1950s. In 1981, it relocated to City 
Center. US Restaurants, the company behind the Green Mill chain, were co-owners briefly in the late
 1980s. The Wu family, founders of the Szechuan Star Restaurant in Edina, have owned the Nankin for
 the past 10 years.
Their lease expired the end of January 1999 and the restaurant sadly closed. 
You can read the rest of the article here
Perfect addition to anyone's collection of vintage restaurants from Minneapolis of 
restaurant postcard collectors.  Offered for sale on eBay at this time
Thanks for stopping by to see my postcard, please take a moment and search others I have posted.

Postcard 1907 University of Minnesota Football Players Northrop Field

I am going through boxes of Minnesota postcards I purchased a couple of months ago.


 
This is a great 1907 post card of Northrop Field University of Minnesota with football players on the field.
Will be listing on an eBay auction tonight. Wonder what else I will find in these boxes of over 2000 postcards.
I think this one is extra special not only for the university fan but for any one with interest in genealogy that had family going to school that year.

Vintage Clothing Can Tell Us A Story

Thursday picked up another 100 plus post cards. Many holiday and a few real photo post cards.
Here is two photo post cards with interesting clothing.
No hints to who they were or where they lived.
That is part of the mystery
Will be added to my eBay store in the future.
If you have any idea to what kind of clothing the children are wearing  I would love to hear your ideas.
Note the fringe on the man's jacket, scarf around his neck and his hat.
