US Highway 50 as it heads east from Kali into Nevada at Stateline. Now it's an overbuilt casino corridor. Nevada now has state sales taxes...but much of it's revenue comes from taxes on gambling. Sadly the political criminals here are just as addicted to unlimited spending as they are everywhere else so they are constantly trying to get new taxes of all kinds passed.
Interesting photo - - the Nevada state line sign proclaims it is (also) a debt free state. Imagine, tax free and debt free. Sounds like a dream.

So, I gotta ask, . . . what year was this happening, or what year was this picture taken, etc.?
From the looks of the cars, 1953-54?....
The red car with the white top, on the far side a ways back looks like a '56 Chevy, judging by the fuzzy taillights. Looks like the bullet lens for that year.
The higher the taxes, the worse the state budget and the more bankrupt they become.
Peoples Republic of Connecticut.
A debt free state, what a thought
That aquamarine beauty parked under the sign, isn't that a Cadillac? I'd drive that!
Yes, c. 50-53
