    Yesco sign company in 1961. Founded in 1933 and still in existence but now part of Samsung. They built most of the iconic signs in LV including Vegas Vic.

    They also own the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign.

    The rear end of those 59 Chevys had to be the worst design idea ever. I think Ford outsold Chevy that model year for the first time in decades. Thanks for the post. I really enjoy the old Vegas photos.

    Prices have changed a little bit since the 70's. :) Buffet dinner for $2.98!

    The El Rancho is long gone as the Fountainbleu now rests on its spot.

    These guys at the LVCC, Hilton in background. This was actually in Don Rickles house, of which many of his momentos were recently auctioned off. I tried to get this for my personal collection, but lost the auction

    The original Flamingo bungalows built by Mr. Siegal were still welcoming guests back in the 80's at the Flamingo. I think they called them the Garden somethings.

    That was great! Only watched until 1967, which was the first time my parents took me there. Saw Red Skelton.
