You Won’t Believe What Vegas Looked Like 60 Years Ago

#4 Casinos Had Similar Layouts

011-4-casinos-had-similar-layouts-715337When we look through these old photographs, it appears that a lot has surely changed. But one thing that has not is how the tables look! The games are surely played the same and there are always plenty of people at each station. The only difference in these photographs is the vintage clothing!

#3 Parking Does Not Look Like This Anymore

012-3-parking-does-not-look-like-this-anymo-722188When you’re in Vegas now, there’s no way you’d be able to find parking in front of the hotel like this! The city is full of parking garages, and those hotels that don’t have garages have massive lots, not tiny ones like this! You’ll also never see a parking lot full of vintage cars like this either. Too bad!

#2 This Used To Be One Of The Biggest Hotels In Vegas

013-2-this-used-to-be-one-of-the-biggest-ho-715402Now, when you think of the biggest hotel in Las Vegas, Ceasar’s Palace or even The Mirage might come to mind. But this hotel actually used to be the biggest in Vegas! Pretty funny considering just how tiny it is! There aren’t even any lights on the sign!

#1 Show Girls Look The Same

014-1-show-girls-look-the-same-715457One thing that looks the same from 50 years ago are the showgirls! If you go to Vegas now, you’ll see plenty of pretty ladies running around in tiny costumes and feathered hats! The showgirls and the tables have not changed, but really, those are pretty essential to what makes Vegas so great!

Although a lot has changed since the early days of Vegas, there’s no doubt that a lot of the scenes have stayed true to their origin. Vegas is brighter, bigger, and more alive than it has ever been, and it’s likely that it will only continue to grow.

With such a large area to work with around the casinos, it won’t be surprising to see how big it just might become one day. Although there’s a huge difference between Vegas today and Vegas 60 years ago, just imagine what it will look like in 50 more years!
