Vintage Postcard – Desert Inn

Desert Inn - Night View

Wilbur Clark’s Desert Inn,
Las Vegas, Nevada
Adjacent to the beautiful olympic swimming pool of this fabulous “strip” hotel is nightly presented a breathtakingly beautiful performance of the “dancing Waters” – dancing to the accompaniment of beautiful music.

This lovely night view vintage postcard was mailed March 4 1961 using a green 3 cent International Naval Review Jamestown Festival stamp. It was mailed to Simos Brothers – Excavators, Platt Avenue Hills, West Haven 16, Connecticut. It reads:

Beside this – the most beautiful stage – the Stardust has about 7 or 8 different arrangements of water sprays – falls – streams – ponds – fountains etc. – Thought this would interest you
George Colins
Sumac St

I only can assume that George Colins works as an excavator as well and spent most of his time vacationing looking at water sprays, streams, ponds, etc. I bet his vacation slide-show-viewing parties at home were legendary “and here, you see another pond with landscaping…”

This postcard is added to my collection of Desert Inn postcards, as shown in the mega-post here. The Desert Inn operated fromĀ April 24, 1950 to August 28, 2000. It was where Wynn Las Vegas stands now. Desert Inn has a fascinating history…check out the Wikipedia here.
