The small city of Fallon, is located in western Nevada and is primarily an agricultural community on highway US 50, a trans-continental route. The principal crops are alfalfa and Fallon Heart O’ Gold cantaloupes, grown on approximately 50,000 acres in the area.
All that agricultural work must have made the locals thirsty and hungry as we see the Barrel-House Bar & Cafe the local watering hole serving Blatz beer, prominently shown in the postcard photo. Out front we see a mid-1930s Packard sedan along with an assortment of what appear to be pre-war cars and trucks parked in the city. Photo courtesy of Bob Zimmerman.
