This is a nice photo, which brings back an old memory...At age 14, I was given a tour through the Vegas strip by a neighbor around the block, and in my youth was fascinated by all the glitter and glow of the place, and I recollect this old Frontier sign with the lights running, in the days FM radio still had some good program formats, and music, including those old Frank Sinatra songs. Keep alive this piece of American history!

Working on Things We Lost in the Night, a memoir of love and music in the 60s with Stark Naked and the Car Thieves. The first of two volumes is already published, now on second which is primarily in Las Vegas. The Silver Slipper is mentioned often and I'd like to include it as a photo option in the book. I've tried to capture this image but it is limited to 256x256 pixels no matter what method I use, even the direct url,,35. Can you give me a location where I can capture this image? I will be sure to attribute it to the library.
