Neon and other lights made this outdoor sign for the Tropicana Resort & 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 Tropicana opened in 1957 and has been operating ever since in that notorious desert destination well-known for its gambling and good times. This historical photograph was taken in 1983 when the Tropicana was owned by the Ramada hotel chain. The marquee sign advertises the hotel's featured entertainment, the Folies Bergére Show, which was the longest running revue theater show in Las Vegas for nearly 50 years. 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.
