The Fabulous Flamingo

I've found a few images of the Flamingo Resort from back in its glory days. It's too bad it does not completely embrace its own history in the design of the resort instead of only briefly acknowledging it through a handful of black and white photos in a back room on the casino floor. It is one of the few resorts along the Strip that has any true or contextual history at all. Although, I was lucky enough to find an older gentleman working in the casino who knew a great deal about the history of the Flamingo. All I had to do was ask.

Images from the 1940s - 1950s:
