On Saturday, September 7th at 6pm I will be giving a rollicking slide talk of historical highlights and sign books at Soap Plant – Wacko, 4633 Hollywood Blvd. “Greetings from Las Vegas” features over 300 vintage photographs and postcards that tell the story of the fabulous desert oasis from its birth in 1905 to the swinging ‘60s and beyond.
Humorous and informative, the book visually celebrates Las Vegas’ evolution from a dusty railroad town to the world’s entertainment capital. What makes this book different from others is the sheer number of images – over 300 – many of which have never been seen before, and the numerous vintage Kodachrome slides of ordinary people enjoying Las Vegas.
SPECIAL BONUS: LAS VEGAS 99¢ SHRIMP COCKTAIL
Following the slide talk, enjoy samples of Las Vegas’ Original 99¢ Shrimp Cocktail made famous at Fremont Street’s Golden Gate Casino first offered in 1959.
