Cool Restored Video From 1962 Vegas

Seen this posted on Facebook from Visit Las Vegas. This is pretty cool due to the restoration of color, haven't seen footage this clean and clear before.

It's only about 3 minutes long and it's nice to see an era I always wished I could have visited, where people dressed up at night, shows were midnight and later and some of the food signs were .98 cents, lol.

Enjoy.

WOW thats terrific.

My wife and I almost died laughing at some of it but the best was the girl in the cowboy hat and unbelieved striped "petal pushers" at the 35 seconds in point !! Unbelievable !! LOL

Believe it or not, we stayed at the Thunderbird and loved the Silver Slipper. We have about 20 decks of cards from Silver Slipper and made the Mint, Sahara and lots of things in the video although it was a little before our time but not much.

Thanks for sharing that, it was so much fun !!

HA, Placebets, her outfit had me cracking up too but I'm sure back then she was in high fashion! Her posing is the best part.

What I really liked also was the glass roof train they are on. Or is it a bus? I'm guessing train as they arrive at the station downtown but busses also id too. Bet that is one HOT ride back then in the summer months.

I liked the shot of the couple hugging at the beginning on it, its a really great shot and the music used for it is hauntingly beautiful in a way.
