This postcard shows the front view of the El Rancho Hotel in Las Vegas Nevada. The card is not dated, but going by the cars shown I'd guess its from around 1956.
The front of the card shows the hotel, the driveway, the tower, and the sign on top of the building that says Opera House, Casino, Restaurant, and Saloon. I believe that last word is saloon, but I'm not positive.
The description on the back states:
El Rancho Vegas Las Vegas Nevada. A Las Vegas landmark. The first luxury resort hotel, established in 1941, and still the mecca for tourists. It is Las Vegas" only hotel in the Western manner both in architectural style and feeling. Top name entertainment appears nightly in the old fashioned Opera House. The 66 spacious acres consist of individual bungalow arrangements, as well as conventional hotel rooms.
The card is postally unused.
The card measures roughly 3.5 by 5.5 inches. It's very bright in color. The card has straight even edges. The card has a divided back, meaning one side for the address and one side for writing a message.
I recently purchased a few dozen older postcards at an estate sale. The subjects of the cards are in and around The Las Vegas area. They are of 'old Vegas" and many are of the old casinos and hotels that have long ago been demolished. I do combine shipping on multiple purchases (see shipping notes below), so be sure to check out my other items.
I am not a postcard collector and don't know how to 'rate" postcards. Personally, I think the card is in great condition for being over 60 years old. I can see that there are tiny bumps to the corners, but they are so small that I can't get a measurement.
Buyer to pay $2.50 First Class Mail delivery charges. That cost will cover shipping for up to the purchase of 4 postcards.
NOTE about combined shipping: My website host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR PAYMENT ON INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
