Caption: Women's Restroom Door Plaque
Additional Description: A plaque mounted on the women's restroom door in the E Clampus Vitus building identifies the door itself as having been a gift from the Cash brothers. It was obtained from a demolished Reno brothel. A door once used by men in Reno is now used to provide for widow's relief.

Plaque reads:
This door once was a portal to paradise for the brethren. A valueless relic acquired from the Reno "Cribs" upon demolition. The "Cribs" were curiously situated just across the Truckee River from the Reno Police Station.
