Announcing Business Names
For want of a better description, I’ve titled this collection of photographs “Storefronts”.
Among these are pictures of small and giant signs alike, entrance ways, doorways, banners and more.
From 1980 to 2012 we were part of the computer industry and would travel two or three times a year to Las Vegas to attend Comdex, Computer Electronics Show and other expos. When I was off the clock I’d often explore nearby Death Valley, Red Rock Canyon or Zion. Otherwise I would walk the Strip to visit the city’s many casinos.
There has always been intensive competition among the casinos vying to outdo each other to draw more gamblers and guests to their respective venues. I recall when the Mirage opened in 1990 it featured a huge, colored fire-breathing volcano to draw attention to its new facility. Not to be outdone, in 1998 when the Bellagio opened a few block away it showcased a huge gorgeous lake on which lighted water fountains danced to music to wave potential guests into its spacious casino.
Turn up your sound! I’ve recorded three of these exciting, picturesque fountain performances below for you to enjoy.
Please note that each geyser is on a separate page in order to minimize web page delay.
The Bellagio is a great place to visit when you’re in Las Vegas.
