One thought on “Wild West and Las Vegas In 1969

  1. In answer to a question The Mint shown in the video was next to Binions Horseshoe which later took over The Mint and combined the two areas. In more recent times Caesars Entertainment took over Binion’s just long enough to remove the Horseshoe name to use on other properties and then sold the renamed property now called just Binion’s. The former Mint part of the casino is the left part of the casino with the higher ceilings as opposed to the lower ceilings in Binion’s.
