Cool.

I walked in the door of one of those places in that era, and was
confronted by a ten-by-ten grid of currency bills sandwiched between
glass plates. $10,000 bills they were. That was big money in those
days.

Looks just a bit different these days!
My wife and I used to go to Vegas a couple of times a year, but the
place has become so mired in the 'mega casino' and 'mega hotel' craze to
the point where it is downright intimidating and no longer fun. Now we
go to Shreveport. One is a 3 hour drive, the other a 3 hour flight.
The traffic in both cities is bad, though.

The Horseshoe Casino in Shreveport, La. has a wall of $1,000,000 worth
of $100 bills between the hotel and the casino. Pretty impressive!

The Thunderbird Hotel and Casino was on the Strip and not on Fremont
Street. It was torn down a few years ago, after being vacant and
boarded up for sometime.

Interesting shots, though.

That was Binion's Horseshoe Casino, where the World Series of Poker was
held for many years.
