Neon and other colorful lights made this sparkling outdoor sign for the Stardust Resort and Casino stand out at night along Las Vegas Blvd., 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 Stardust opened in 1958 in that notorious desert destination well-known for its gambling and good times. Its roadside sign changed in design and shape several times before and after this historical photograph was taken in 1983. The Stardust was demolished after closing in 2006, and this sign is only a memory.

Neon and other colorful lights made this sparkling outdoor sign for the Stardust Resort and 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 Stardust opened in 1958 in that notorious desert destination well-known for its gambling and good times. Its roadside sign changed in design and shape several times before and after this historical photograph was taken in 1983. The Stardust was demolished after closing in 2006, and this sign is only a memory. 'Lido" was the name of the resort's popular stage show that originally featured showgirls from Paris, France. 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.
