Synopsis: In 1957, the sixty-foot, tulip-shaped fountain that graced the front of the Tropicana Hotel caught the attention of anyone on the southern end of the Strip. Today, the fountain is long gone, the victim of a 1970s remodel, but the Tropicana still stands. In 1966, when Caesars Palace celebrated its grand opening with a $1 million party, visitors were greeted by a replica of the Winged Victory of Samothrace. The statue still stands today—but many other aspects of the hotel have changed.
Las Vegas Then and Now captures the city as it evolved from a desert railroad outpost into one of the entertainment capitals of the world. Pairing historical photographs of the town with specially-commissioned views of the same scenes today, Las Vegas Then and Now offers readers an intriguing look into the history of a city that has become an icon of glitz, glamour, gluttony, and gambling visited by millions of tourists each year.
