Our friend cultural historian and downtown neighbor Brian Paco Alvarez filled our inbox today with a lot of different topics, so I’m lumping them all into one big catch-all post. Click away!
Note, there’s photos above the article
He also sent a postcard from his personal collection.
This is the Wittwer Motel, one of the motor courts of which we’ve lost way too many.
And finally, a note from Paco about the Garden Of Love Wedding Chapel:
As many of you have heard the Garden of Love Wedding Chapel has had its license revoked as of last night by an act of the City Council. This should be a red flag alerting us that this building is now endangered of being sold and possibly being demolished. As you know the building is a classic mid-century structure as is its iconic sign with its tall spire. We need to keep a vigilant eye on this building since it is one of the few remaining buildings like it on Las Vegas Boulevard.
With Regards – Brian Paco…
