I found the plate above at a local thrift store. The New Cal-Vada Lodge - well, old or new - I'd never heard of it. Cal-Neva I had heard of, but not this one.
So I looked on the internet, and at least I found an old matchbook cover:
And I also the postcard, below, posted on Flickr by Know Nevada. So we know it is/was in Crystal Bay, Nevada. And the picture and the matchbook, I'm guessing - are from the 1950's. So I wonder when the plate is from? The "New" Cal-Vada Lodge. We're assuming it's newer than the "old" Cal-Vada Lodge.
