Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Excellent question and valid points, Moira.

Lynn's ground-breaking blend of words, images, and videos chronicling these eras of Las Vegas history "will become more common," I hope. I'd also like to know some of Lynn's favorite interview subjects!

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Thanks for sharing those videos with your response! In your book you discuss many aspects of the architecture of Las Vegas, and I was wondering how you feel about it's contribution to the Mid-Century modern aspect of American architecture. Also, how have the innovations devised for Las Vegas hotels ...

Thanks for sharing these wonderful videos! I enjoyed hearing your parents and other Elvis fans share their memories of his Vegas performances.

Re: The Q & A on Las Vegas 1956-1973 with Lynn Zook

Thanks for these great responses! I love reading all about your own personal experiences in the shadow of neon and the excitement of Las Vegas in its heyday. I made my first trip to the MGM in 1980, and remember the MGM Theatre still being open, but unfortunately didn't make it to that fabulous gift...
