Do you remember when Highway 50 went through Downtown?

Today is International Traffic Light Day, and so we thought we’d bring you a blast from the past. We talk about the parking in the center of Maine regularly but bring up the traffic light on Center a lot less often. It certainly gave downtown a different vibe!

Photo Postcard – Maine Street, Fallon Nevada c. 1930s-1940s. Vintage automobiles parked on either side of a bustling street, as well as down the center. A traffic light hangs in the intersection, suspended by wires. Nancy Fullmer Collection.
