Viva Las Vegas And Other Stories

Doesn’t this image look like it’s from a movie? It’s not, it’s real life in 50s Vegas. More of them here.

I found these images via the very excellent Retronaut website, I’d recommend it for a trawl through. Some really amazing image galleries, including these particular favourites of mine:

Invisible mothers in Victorian photography.

The disappearing face of New York (I kinda want to meet the Sturgeon King).

Suffragette mugshots.

Victorian bulldogs in fancy dress (who says the Victorians were all straight-laced uptights?).

Turn of the century Parisian shopfronts.

It’s a real treasure trove. Happy exploring!
