2 folders (in shared box); (0.10 cubic feet, 0.10 linear feet)
The Las Vegas High School Tales of Las Vegas Collection consists of two hand-bound books written by the 1924 Class of Modern History and the 1925 Class of United States History at Las Vegas High School. The two books, both entitled "Tales of Las Vegas", chronicle Las Vegas, Nevada history starting in the 17th century with the Spanish Jesuits Franciscan Monks. The books then focus on the 1905 "boom" stage of Las Vegas, discussing topics including Mormons, Native Americans, and mining. The two books are similar in content but not identical, and both contain photographs of early Las Vegas, Nevada life.
