Highlights from our trip to old Las Vegas

The West side of the old El Cortez Hotel and Casino, built in the 1940s and once owned by Benjamin (Flamingo Hotel) Siegel.

The south side of the Casino, advertising now non-existent "floor show."

The South side showing the full sign. (The reason we are showing you three views is because no one has any views of the old side of the hotel -- only the newer North side. We think the original South side is better.)

The beginning of the outdoor Neon Museum. Here's Matt in front of the signature neon for a now gone hotel/casino called "The Hacienda" -- the Neon Museum's first installation.

Another of the Neon Museum's neat signs (Christopher in front). This museum ends at Fremont Street, the historic downtown Las Vegas.
