Tropicana Las Vegas 1979 - Jim Johnson Photo Series - 1

Las Vegas 1979, how cool!  The Tropicana Hotel and Casino, located on the southeast corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd.  33 years ago.  Notice the unimproved background.  Also notice that there are none of the pedestrian related improvements which exist at that corner today.

On the board I see the Disco Dimensions, playing in Las Vegas, when Disco was current.  Today from time to time one can find a band playing a nostalgic disco gig, on various stages - Imperial Palace, Fremont Street, etc.

This is #1 in the Jim Johnson Las Vegas Photo Series.  We have begun.  Thank you Jim.

Man it looks funny seeing the Tropicana sign with folies bergere 79 being advertised on it.

No Las Vegas Blvd pedestrian cross overs yet.  No buildings in the background.

Thank you for visiting
