Your History: Very Vintage Vegas, Baby
December 22nd, 2007 @ 6:22 pm by Cliffe | Sorted Links To The Past |
Let’s take this slow holiday weekend to explore outside of Seattle, shall we? Uncle Jack Levine is running the Very Vintage Vegas< /a> Blog and doing a kick arse job of it with Las Vegas being an even younger city than Seattle. As he writes on his site, the 1950′s are considered “old” in Las Vegas. Jack is a realtor who has helped people find vintage (and other) housing in Vegas for the past 17 years. There’s also a great feature on the blog highlighting the worst MLS listing photographs and is it hilarious. Didi also posted
regarding this dolphin shower curtain shot
that had me in stiches. Just awesome. Give Jack’s Blog a click.
And just to illustrate how young Vegas is, take a look at this city panorama from 1910.
In 1911, the city had just 800 residents.
That’s some serious growth in a relatively short amount of time.
