“This Way”

Wonderful vintage photograph taken in 1961 showing a Naegele billboard for downtown Las Vegas and Fremont Street. Go straight ahead and you will find this little town with hotels, motels, stores, theatres, casinos, restaurants, shows and very importantly… ample parking! What a great billboard and advertisement for Las Vegas… as it was over 50 years […]

Great snapshot of a Cable Car in early 1960’s San Francisco, CA! Looks to have been a rainy day, as men are wearing rain jackets and women plastic head scarfs.

Lots going on in this photograph. Dozens of people and children all dressed very nicely. Many different expressions, some of amazement, some being entertained and […]

“Cars and Stars”

In 1961, the date this photograph was taken, the Stardust was just 3 years old. With the row of cars from the time period, all lined up under the famous Stardust […]
