Description:

Lake Tahoe is quite the sight anytime of year. As traveler Grace Greenwood noted in 1873, the lake "is an emerald on the brow of the mountain." This splendid digital collection from the University of Nevada-Reno brings together hundreds of photographs documenting this unique body of water that sits on the California and Nevada border. All told, there are over 1,000 items here that document the lake's transformation from placid and pristine to buzzing with tourism activity by the mid 20th century. Along the way, visitors can view items by date of creation, category, and photographer. Keyword searches can be quite revealing and first-time visitors might like to start with "beach," "casino," or "Emerald Bay."
