the image is inverted or negative. if you are looking at the front of the Dunes, Flamingo Rd should be on the left!

Thank you for your keen observation! The photograph we scanned for this image was a print that was apparently created from the 'wrong' side of negative film, which has given us an inverted image. Thanks again for pointing this out to us-- we strive to improve our collections and we appreciate your contribution to the accuracy of our records.

That kind of blew my mind too for a minute. I wondered what the sign was doing on the wrong side of the building.
