Wedding Chapel

Looks like the marquee for some sort of wedding chapel.

The "Big W" on the far left side of this image is from the Showboat that used to grace Fremont Street. The Hotel/Casino has now become the Castaways. Many thanks to Jay Lin for photo and to Jim Emory and Allen Sandquist for their knowledge in solving the "Big W" mystery.

Well, see the crown on the rooftop in the postcard to the right? It is off of the Royal Nevada which used to sit next to the Stardust in the mid 50's. It has been sitting in the graveyard for over 45 years, and has made the move all three times that they (YESCO) have relocated the yard. Many thanks to Jim Emory for solving the "crown" puzzle and for info above.

Here's the old Binion's Horseshoe sign next to what appears to be an object from the old Aladdin.

 

 

El Portal/China Cafe

In the front is a discarded sign from the El Portal in downtown. What's interesting is the sign behind the El Portal with the character from the China Garden Cafe. Was there also a China Garden Cafe in the Vegas area? If so, where was it?

There's also a China Garden Cafe in Cedar City, UT which was seen first-hand a year or so ago. A fellow traveler also contributed this photo found here.
