Families have lived here since its founding in 1905. After 1931, legalized gaming became the big tourist draw, and following World War II, the town began to market itself as Americas Playground. That is when the famed Las Vegas Strip came into its own and downtown was dubbed Glitter Gulch. These vintage postcards show how Las Vegas evolved from a dusty railroad town into the Entertainment Capital of the World, while remaining a city filled with families and pioneering souls.
