Fremont Street – Las Vegas, Nevada – Part 1

Jim says:

Yesterday Mary and I visited Fremont Street in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was the area of the original Las Vegas…before “The Strip” came along. The first neon sign was lit in 1929 and the first legal gambling establishment in 1931. Nearby there are many older (with some closed or abandoned) motels.

We visited during the daylight hours. Soon we will visit at night during the light show.

In 1994, construction started on a seven block area to turn it into a pedestrian way. Here’s what it looked like in 1952…
