The resort had a Native American theme and featured portraits, a Navajo-based restaurant, the only bowling alley ever on the Strip, and a showroom. #lasvegas #lasvegasstrip #vegas #oldschool #oldschoolvegas #vintage #vintagevegas #vintagelasvegas #neon #hotel #thunderbird

If we could rewind the clock back to 1954, the Safari would be luring travelers with its "smartly furnished for your comfort" rooms and "heated swimming pool with large cabana & large shaded lawn area for lounging." Sadly, the Safari has become magnet for drugs, prostitution and violent crime since the late 1990s. #LasVegasPhotoJackpot

The Las Vegas Club moved across Fremont Street to 18 Fremont Street in 1949. It's early owners at this location included Tutor Scherer, Mel Exber, Jackie Gaughan, et.al. Tutor Scherer first made his money in the small town of Rawhide, Nevada during the gold mining boom. However, he never actually did any mining. He would stake a claim and then resell it before the 90 day limit requiring work to begin. Scherer loved to gamble and soon lost the money he made in his "mining" ventures. In 1940 he moved to Las Vegas and owned an interest in several properties but the Pioneer was always his favorite. Tutor is responsible for the design of Vegas Vic. #lasvegas #lasvegasstrip #vegas #vegavick #vegasvick #fremontstreet #freemont #fremontstreetexperience #oldschoolvegas #vintage #vintagevegas #vintagelasvegas #glitergulch #neon #neonlights
