The Hotel Flamingo was the first luxury resort on the strip, and it’s early history is deeply entwined with the influence of the mob, including such famous figures as Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky.
The description states:
THE SHOWPLACE OF THE NATION
FLAMINGO HOTEL, LAS VEGAS NEVADA
This is a view of the grounds of the Famous Flamingo Hotel, showing in the center of its beautiful landscaped gardens.
–The resort still exists, but has been extensively reconstructed several times since this image, so there is literally nothing left of what you can see here. The image is from the 1950s.
