2. Ginsburg House. The Ginsburg name is well-known in Reno not just for Harry Ginsburg’s longstanding jewelry store, but for the 18-foot-high, four-sided clock that he had installed in front of his Virginia Street business on November 18, 1935. The Ginsburgs were born, raised, and married (1903) in Russia, before immigrating to the west coast of the United States in 1906. Harry Ginsburg’s father had reportedly been watchmaker to the Czar and family until 1904. (Submitted on January 1, 2021, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
