With Sunday’s return of “Mad Men”, the AMC series examining life on Madison Avenue during the 1960s, it seems like an appropriate time to take a look back at Las Vegas advertising from the era.
Following the lead of New Yorker, which recently saluted the show by republishing classic ads that first appeared in its pages in the ’60s, Sun staff delved into the newspaper’s archives and resurrected some ads from March 1963.
Cars. Casinos. Smooth whiskey. Surely, Las Vegas of the early ’60s would have been Don Draper’s kind of town.
As the show returns after a lengthy hiatus stemming from a dispute between its creator and AMC, come along on a nostalgia trip, Sun-style.
It’s going to be a swingin’ time.
