Caption: Hotel Sal Sagev 1931
Additional Description: Hotel Neveda is renamed Hotel Sal Sagev, Las Vegas spelled backwards (1931). During the Depression years, the downtown economy is boosted by an influx of workers building Hoover Dam, then the tallest dam is the world. After a long absence, gambling and whiskey return to Fremont Street, creating more opportunities for dam workers to spend their money.
