Capturing Las Vegas while you can

 

When I was much younger while growing up in Las Vegas I never dreamed that the city I know could change as much as it has. I always thought the front of Caesars would be turquoise and the Dunes sign would always being shooting neon into the sky. Even after we lost the train depot back in the late 1960s, it never dawned on me that one day we would lose the Mint, the original galaxy front of the Stardust and that many of original hotels that had been instrumental in the popularity and growth of the famed Strip would be erased from the landscape. It finally hit home when the Dunes was destroyed and the front of Caesars turned off the turquoise light, and got rid of the Sarno block privacy screen in its march to become the Strip's version of the Winchester Mystery House.
