Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

Frontier Hotel Sign -- R.I.P.

I wonder if my blog had anything to do with this eyesore finally being taken down?  In a way I was kind of sad to see it no longer standing.  Yes it looked like crap, but it also represented a period of Las Vegas history that has long ago vanished.



Here's a few photos I took before the sign was taken down:

  1. I get sad when I think of the holy trinity of the Frontier, Stardust and Westward Ho no longer standing ... and for what? Empty fields and the skeleton of greed. Such a bummer.

  2. Where was that sign located? As I recall the Frontier was on the strip next to the old Stardust but there weren't any freeways or overpass next to it.

  3. Sign is/was on Industrial Road. I assume it was for the back entrance of the Frontier. JH.
