Las Vegas in the 1960s was a popular playground for adults looking for an escape. This poster by Stan Galli to promote travel to the area with United Air highlights the daytime appeal of this oasis in the desert. A woman laughs as her date swims up to greet her by the pool and we see the spacious resort that lies behind them. Accompanying text reminds us that Las Vegas is a great option for, "Day Time Sun - Night Time Fun".
