I thought it might be fun to put up some old ads from Las Vegas magazines and newspapers. Bonanza Village is a historic Las Vegas neighborhood located off Bonanza Avenue near Clarkway. Sounds like quite a bargain in these days, doesn't it? Note the line, every protective restriction. You know what that means, right?
Big Jim Cashman sold all makes and models it seems. I remember his dealership as mainly the Cadillac dealer. He was one of the most civic minded boosters the town has ever had.
I want to be able to buy Chicken, Rum and Flour at these prices.
I want my S&H green stamps, my Blue Chip and my Orange Stamps as well.
But most of all, I want to know why bacon used to come in a can?
I never realized that Pabst Blue Ribbon (my dad's favorite beer) was blended that much. Did you?
Ed Von Tobel, Sr was a very practical man. One of the pioneers of Las Vegas, he and his sons
had the best Lumber and Hardware store in town.
How cool is that?
We had a Coca-Cola Bottling Plant and a 7-Up Bottling Plant.
Not bad for a small town.
Tomorrow I'll post some ads from the swanky 1950s and 1960s. You might be surprised at how swanky and elegant the folks in Las Vegas were back then.
