    Great photo. I've been researching The Last Frontier Hotel and Casino for a historical fiction novel where on of the characters works at this hotel in 1943. Its tough finding pictures. I'm trying to get a feel for the front of the play, but they're aren't many. Only a few of the swimming pool.

    Thanks for the photo
