These 82 Pics Will Make You Yearn For Vintage Las Vegas

Before the glittery golden opulence of The Mirage and the singing gondoliers at The Venetian, there was a storied past to Las Vegas – where gangsters ruled the Strip and neon-lit up the clubs and casinos of old downtown.

The Vegas of the ’50s and ’60s holds a certain charm, even to those who had never visited Sin City in those early years, and the photos here seek to convey some of that charm.

From the one-armed bandits and the feathered and frocked showgirls to the neon signs that dotted Fremont Street, the spell of vintage Vegas grabs ahold and never let’s go!
