The Gewgaw, Las Vegas Souvenir Fan

The Gewgaw has finally returned.

This plastic fan is decorated with pictures of casinos, a few which have long since vanished from the Las Vegas landscape - The Sahara, Landmark, Stardust (with original starburst sign), Circus Circus, the Freemont/Downtown area, Caesars, the Hilton, and the pre-fire MGM Grand.

Oh, and of course, what souvenir would be complete without the ubiquitous Hoover Dam.

The fan is a bit dysfunctional - the plastic is flexible and it bends and flops when you fan yourself. It would probably melt in the heat of a Las Vegas summer.
