Sign of the times
The photo shows the manager of the famous Sands hotel, Jake Freedman, rolling dice with gamblers in his casino. Freedman frequented his casino with his wife and enjoyed watching the gamblers, as well as joining in for some fun.
Freedman’s vision for the hotel was to build the most luxurious hotel in Vegas, to accommodate the most glamorous stars. Its iconic name, “Sands,” was given to the hotel thanks to the desert climate – Freedman’s shoes became full of sand when he visited the property.
