#SignHistory: Located near the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd., the Lone Palm housed many of the casino workers who wanted to keep their families close by. The complex included a typical two-wing motel setup with a very popular large pool and diving board, a set of apartments, and a large trailer park for both permanent residents and travelers. A new era of large casino resorts cast long shadows on the idyllic motel and its residents who have fond memories of growing up at the Lone Palm. The colorful sign included a palm tree appearing to bend in the breeze following the mid-century trend of using relatively local flora and fauna in signage. Today the New York-New York stands where the Lone Palm once lived.
Our final #librarygetaway for July takes us up to Mount Charleston which has long been a favorite day trip for Las Vegans. It is always guaranteed to be between 10-20 degrees cooler when you arrive and the difference between the desert and alpine landscape is striking. It's a lovely and peaceful getaway from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas Strip. Our collection features many photos of Mount Charleston dating from the 1920s onward and we are particularly enamored of these fun postcards that highlight the attractions of the Ski-Bar Ranch and the Mount Charleston Lodge (circa 1940s). From the Manis Collection PH-0100. #specialcollections #librariesofinstagram #mountcharleston #oldvegas #vintagelasvegas #mountcharlestonnevada #mountcharlestonlodge #classiclasvegas #skibarranch #oldpostcards #vintagepostcards

Well after a weekend with a malfunctioning iPhone and a lost iPad charger, we're back in the Instagram biz with a very belated #librarygetaway postcard that would have been sent by Vegas visitors back in the late 1930s. We love the vibrant colors in this particular Western-style postcard and the motto #stillafrontiertown which characterized the early days of gambling in Las Vegas. Between legalized gambling and Boulder Dam it was a favorite getaway spot for many even when it lacked the glamorous resorts that came to symbolize Vegas from the 1950s onward. Yet even in their wildest dreams we bet they never thought the tiny desert town would ever attract nearly 43 million visitors which was the official number for 2016! PH:0014-0133. #vegashistory #vintagevegas #librariesofinstagram #downtownvegas #specialcollections #classiclasvegas #gamblinghistory #vintagelasvegas #vintagegambling #boulderclub #oldfremontstreet
