Often Called “Stone Screens”, Decorative Concrete Block Can Be Found In All Of The Historic Las Vegas Neighborhoods

Uncle Jack collects images of the various concrete block  designs that are all over in  Vintage Las VegasI thought I’d found every single pattern that there could possibly be, but lo and behold…. 2 more!

Almost every pattern I’ve found can be found on many different homes, but these 2 so far on unique. I found the first one in McNeil, and the second pattern in a pretty run down neighborhood near Tropicana and the 515.
