The book is terrific. We have enjoyed the pictures and especially where the picture was taken and if people who they are. Wish there was more history with most of the pictures but thankful for the book. Thanks

A Keeper

The book “Before the Strip” is a keeper and puts Las Vegas into a historical perspective that can be passed from generation to generation. I believe it is important to have insight into our history and this book captures the past for future generations to appreciate the roots of our community.
