If you went to Las Vegas in the ’50s or ’60s and sent a postcard back home, these are a few of the designs that would have been available to you. From the performers to the kitsch to the lights and signs, these postcards are a snapshot of what it was like to visit Vegas back in the Good Old Days.

It’s interesting to see just how much this bustling city has changed over the years, with landmarks we take for granted today conspicuously absent from some of these images! And, it’s crazy to see empty desert surrounding some of the most popular hotels in Vegas (which are these days are completely surrounded).
