This postcard shows the entrance and marquee sign at the New Frontier Hotel Casino in Las Vegas Nevada. The card is dated 1955 on the back and looking at the vehicles pictured, they all appear to be 1950s models.
The front says "Greetings from The New Frontier. Also, according to the marquee, The Fabulous Dorseys, The Mary Kaye Trio, and several other entertainers were appearing at the time the photo was taken.
The description on the back states:
New Frontier Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada
Crash Corrigan and his party of Hollywood celebrities arriving at this new "Out of this World" hotel, where the spectacular Venus Room nightly offers the finest of stage show productions. The hotel's Cloud 9 Lounge and Planet Room are unique and indescribably beautiful.
Other statements on the back include:
Copyright Ferris H. Scott, Santa Ana, Calif, 1955
Mirro Krome Card by H.S. Crocker Co. Inc, San Francisco 1, California
The card measures roughly 3.5 by 5.5 inches and has great 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 around 60 years old. There are no bends, tears, or cracking. The card is postally unused and has not been addressed or written on.
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.
