“Las Vegas 1905-1965” – A New Look At Las Vegas History Using Postcards

We’re gearing up for Historic Preservation Month which is MAY, but the coverage of Las Vegas History is really heating up already.

Las Vegas in Postcards 1905-1965Our dear friend Lynn Zook, gets ANOTHER plug today, about her new book (with Carie Burke, and Alan Sandquist) of Post Cards from 1905 thru 1965. I got a sneak peek at “Las Vegas 1905–1965”  last week at the Friends of Classic Las Vegas meeting, and was most impressed by the accuracy and the scholarship that went into writing it.

Kristen Peterson,  who’s our favorite preservation reporter from the Las Vegas Sun did a nice article on the book today. You really need to click over to it, as it has several of the postcards that were used, photos from the Sun Archives and lots of great quotes.

There’s nothing else to say except that it’s definitely going onto my coffee table, and ought to be on yours as well.
