My Pix

    Flamingo Hilton, Las Vegas, 1981

The Las Vegas of the '50s and '60s is gone now.  It was already disappearing when I first visited in 1981.  The Flamingo as pictured was a '70s thing.  There are still a few '70s relics around, like Circus Circus.  At least there were when I was last there almost 10 years ago.  The last place you could see someplace that looked the same as when Frank Sinatra strolled through was The Sands, and that was torn down to make way for The Venetian.  Its funny that despite having visited Las Vegas at least 10 times, I only have this and one other photo, both from 1981.
