Re: THE CASINO, OVERLOOKING ELDORADO VALLEY, LV A

Rich, That's the Railroad Pass casino although I didn't know it was called The Casino. Probably taken
around 1931 when it opened. (What's the date on the paper?). The long dirt road was probably US 95
coming up from Searchlight. The town sight out there was called Alunite. A lot of bootleg booze went
thru there. They like to say the casino has been in continuous operation since 1931 but I remember when
it was closed for cheating. It operated as a souvenir shop called the Pass for a while. You can see from
the photos (from Arcadia books) the roof outlines match up. See you tomorrow nite?
