Update: if you looked at the middle picture

 

1951 Parcel Map of Las Vegas brought to you by Jack LeVine of Very Vintage VegasIt’s a funny thing about being the “newest” big city in America. Vintage in Washington DC or NYC or Philly, dates back to revolution. In St. Louis or Columbus, Denver or Seattle, Or San Francisco, it’s 1900!

But Vintage Vegas? 1950!

 

 

 

Jack LeVine provides his unique perspective of Las Vegas History, Las Vegas  Classic Homes, Las Vegas  Historic Neighborhoods, and Las Vegas  Urban LivingBuried deep in the catacombs of Mary’s house, we found a huge wall sized plot map of Las Vegas from 1951. My house isn’t there. Some of McNeil shows up along Ashby, but Glen Heather, and Paradise Palms, and Rancho Bel Air, and Rancho Nevada aren’t there at all, yet.

Scotch 80’s and Huntridge and Charleston Square have proudly raised their heads already. Alta Vista and Southridge show up. But there’s no Marycrest, or Crestview or Morning View Heights.

Like most photos on Very Vintage Vegas, these are clickable thumbnails, and I’m betting you’ll get as much of a kick out of studying them as I did.
