The old strip looks so modest compared to today!

I've never heard of Al Martino or Myron Cohen, how could they be billed above the fabulous Mills Brothers?

The old strip...while modest...seemed so much more 'human scale' than today. I miss it.

I prefer the old Strip to what's there now!

I though the Circus Circus added a hotel later...only the casino existed at the time this picture was taken.
