E-416: Recreational Crack Smoker

 Random Vegas

Moulin Rouge would not be the first property to attempt to cater to blacks. The original was in 1942 when Shamrock Hotel on Fremont St attempted to cater to both blacks and whites. It was a colossal failure as whites vehemently protested. In response, city officials denied Shamrock an operating permit sighting Jim Crow policies in place at the time (The Moulin Rouge and black rights in Las Vegas)

While not being as tall as the real Eiffel Tower in Paris, her replica in Vegas is still larger than life. Especially with the angle shared by @NickyFurmage, with a background sky that can best be described as apocalyptic. We don’t get much rain in the desert but when we do, it comes with vengeance. Thankfully we have photography to capture the magic when it happens. Thanks for sharing, Nicky.
