    Is anyone aware of a good picture book of the history of Vegas?

    Not picture books but check out the writings of the late Hal Rothman. He was a UNLV prof specializing in Vegas/Nevada and Western U.S. history.

    I think there was a pretty good picture book produced along with the American Experience episode on vegas that aired on PBS a decade ago.

    I think that is the American Experience companion piece, no?

    Yup! I like that it's a typical "coffee table" book. It has lots to read, but I can also just pull it into my lap and flip through it to look at the excellent photos of times gone by.
