This postcard shows the pool area of the Fabulous Flamingo Hotel Casino in Las Vegas Nevada. The card is not dated, but I did find two of the exact card on a postcard collector's website. The two that I saw had both been mailed with one having a postmark date in 1954 and the other had a postmark date in 1955.

A couple of other clues that confirm a date of the 1950s for this card is the way California is abbreviated on the back. You'll notice the location of the publisher as being Santa Ana Calif. In 1963 state abbreviations were changed to the 2 letter format that we use today, and also in 1963 the zone digit (the number 1 in this card's case), was changed to the 5 digit zip code we use today. Both of those tasks took several years of planning and adjustments prior to implementation

The card that I am offering was never addressed, stamped, or mailed.

The front of the card shows the Olympic sized pool with many patrons sunning and relaxing.

The description on the back states:
Fabulous Flamingo, Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Hotel Flamingo's famous Olympic pool is one of the nations finest and has been the setting for many of Hollywood's great film and TV productions.

Other statements on the back are:
Pub. by Western Resort Publications, Santa Ana, Calif.
Mirro-Krome card by H.S. Crocker Co. Inc. San Francisco 1, Calif.
LV-4

The card measures roughly 3.5 by 5.5 inches and is 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.

CONDITION:
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 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.

SHIPPING:
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.

INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES:
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.
