Question:
I ran across these a while back and got around to scanning them. These are from one of my very first trips to Las Vegas, and the only time I remember being there for New Years Eve.

These were taken on Fremont St, waaaaay before the FSE was even somebody's dream, late 70's, not totally sure of the year.


Answer:
Thanks annie, I moved to Vegas as a young man of 18 starting out on his own in 1980, stepped right out of the Greyhound bus station next to the UP. Shortly thereafter I went to a county funded trade school for a few months located on Main st. about two blocks from downtown, so I spent a lot of time down there living on cheap eats. Needless to say downtown holds a tremendous amount of personal nostalgia, and it's always terrific to see pictures from that time period. I miss the MINT, it had arguably the coolest exterior of all, very hypnotic watching that light bar going up, lighting the star and then gliding back down again. I miss the old Gold Nugget exterior too now. At the time Wynn remolded it, I thought the new look was fantastic, but now I wish it still matched up with its neighbors for nostalgia sake. There's still lots of hotels like the Four Queens that appear untouched by time.
