Reproduction Photo Postcard, Business Women in Wahmonie Nevada 1928

"First Women" These ladies were not only the first women in Wahmonie, Nevada, they were business women as well and started the first gas station there.  It was a rich strike in 1928, but it played out quickly.  An N.E. Johnson Photo reproduced by Lawrence Publishing in Bandon Oregon
I found this postcard while RVing.  Good quality for a reproduction.

I was just looking at a circa 1928 photo from Remick's Garage in Beatty, Nevada. It has a "76 Union" sign as seen in this photo but has a sign above it that says "WAHMONIE".I wonder what the relationship was?
