An Old Las Vegas Newspaper

I am looking at a 106 year old Las Vegas newspaper.   The Las Vegas Times from 24 February 1906.

It was published every Saturday by James Brown, Editor and Publisher, at a price of .10 for a single copy, or $3.00 for a year.

Perusing through it...

  • There was a one room house for rent on the corner of First and Bridger Street.  No house on that corner now.
  • J.F. Miller Proprietor of Hotel Nevada advertised an American and European plan.
  • Vegas Property Owners Are Making Substantial City Improvements.  -- The improvement was cement sidewalks.
  • The Little Gem Restaurant advertised Meals at All Hours.  Short Orders A Specialty.  Best of Accomodations.  BLOCK 16 NEXT DOOR TO ARIZONA CLUB.  Las Vegas, Nevada.
Thank you for visiting
