Kathleen Bell has a mural that she inherited from her father, Charles Bell, whoÂ aquired it in the 60â€™s or early 70â€™s. He alwaysÂ said that it came from one of the early strip casinos, but no one ever pressed him for more detail. Â
Kathleenâ€™s trying to find out the artist, the history or anything she can about it. Itâ€™s about 3.5â€™ x 6â€™ and might have been part of a larger set of two or three panels.
IfÂ any of you old timers orÂ Las Vegas Lifers, haveÂ any memory or recollection of where this came from, you can leave a comment, or email me and weâ€™ll make sure to get your clue to the right people. Â
Of course, I recognize many of the faces, can name about 1/2 of them and am clueless about the rest. Anyone able to name them all? If you can, please use the comments to do it. One of you must be a real movie buff.
Thereâ€™s bigger versions below the fold if you want to see more of the pictures or leave a comment.
