A sample of Lew Hymers’ “Seen About Town”

JacobsenRawI wrote a column about Lew Hymers’ book last weekend; thought you might enjoy seeing a random page scanned from that book.

I’ve had a number of inquiries about availability of the book. It’s well out of print and not catalogued in the usual channels; considered a “collectors’ item” it’s being sold on a couple of websites for over $400. There is a 1999 revision of the book available through the University Oral History Program or Sundance, but it’s pricey also and only has about 50 pictures in it, with a lot of narrative. The original may be viewed, I think, at the Nevada Historical Society, noon to four pm Wednesday through Saturday.
