Neon and other colorful lights made these outdoor signs for the Dunes Hotel and its Oasis Casino stand out at night along Las Vegas Boulevard, better known as the Strip, a roadway lined with spectacular resort hotels and casinos just south of the city limits of Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The Dunes opened in 1955, an early attraction in that notorious desert destination well-known for its gambling and good times. When the hotel was demolished in 1993 to make room for the new Bellagio mega-resort, these landmark signs and neon palm trees were lost to history.

Neon and other colorful lights made these outdoor signs for the Dunes Hotel and its Oasis Casino stand out at night along Las Vegas Boulevard, better known as the Strip, a roadway lined with spectacular resort hotels and casinos just south of the city limits of Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The Dunes opened in 1955, an early attraction in that notorious desert destination well-known for its gambling and good times. When the hotel was demolished in 1993 to make room for the new Bellagio mega-resort, these landmark signs and neon palm trees were lost to history. 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 it the tourist attraction that continues to this day. Historical photograph taken in 1983.
