Thanksgiving @ Last Frontier Hotel, Las Vegas, 1951



"Last Frontier Hotel. Las Vegas, Nevada. Thanksgiving. Las Vegas, Nev. -- Pretty Joan Manning didn't have the heart to kill this turkey at the Last Frontier Village so she decided to make a pet of it and eat hamburger for Thanksgiving." Via the USC archives.

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
