Neon and other colorful lights made these outdoor signs for casinos and hotels stand out at night and during the day along Fremont Street, the original downtown center for gambling and good times in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Easily recognized in the neon display are a cowboy and a cowgirl nicknamed Vegas Vic and Vegas Vickie. Since this historical photograph was taken in 1983, Fremont St. has been covered with a canopy that is the world's longest video screen and presents an overhead sound-and-light show to visitors in the pedestrian-only street below.

Neon and other colorful lights made these outdoor signs for casinos and hotels stand out at night and during the day along Fremont Street, the original downtown center for gambling and good times in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

The glowing lights of neon signs first appeared in Las Vegas in 1929. Plentiful electricity produced by the new nearby Hoover Dam turned that sleepy frontier town into the City of Neon Lights by the 1940s and helped make that notorious desert destination the popular tourist attraction that continues to this day.
