    Love vintage photos from LV. I have been looking for some of these to frame in my home.

    These are the best I think I've ever seen, at least for full-color non-bastardized images!

    I did download the bunch, and I'm planning to clean them up a bit (more) with Neat Image and try some prints. I particularly like the two views of downtown, one day, one night, about half way down in the page. Especially the one with the Mint/Binion's/and the corner of The Fremont. (Gogi Grant? Haven't heard that name in decades!) It reminds me very much of my first trip to LV except the Plaza has not been built yet. :)

    That particular one almost looks clean enough to do a 11x14 or even 13x19 of it. I'm sure whoever scanned them did some processing on them, perhaps with Genuine Fractals or something like that. They are exceptionally clean and clear for what appear to be postcard scans! Most shots of that vintage show their age, unfortunately.
