By The Duke of Fremont Street
Since long, long, ago, most of the great treasures of the world have unfortunately been destroyed, stolen or somehow lost forever.
As “The Duke Of Fremont Street”, I realize that we will only be here a short time and that our days on this planet are numbered. With what time I’ve been granted, I have elected to become a caretaker of what precious little is left!
The general consensus in my beloved Las Vegas apparently is to implode or destroy anything that no longer seems relevant in today’s fast-paced society. As a treasure hunter who has traversed six continents, and a precious metals dealer, I bump into this attitude all the time.
Many of the world’s treasures are destroyed every day. I get phone calls from many of my connections on a regular basis offering me items that are destined to be melted down or scrapped if I don’t come to their rescue.
In our throwaway, disposable society, it is more desirable to cash out or scrap than to preserve. I invite you, the reader, to march with me to the beat of a different drummer.
Sip from a crystal glass instead of Styrofoam, eat off chinaware instead of paper plates, and use sterling flatware instead of plastic knives and forks. I invite you to join me in my quest to preserve what precious little is left from our “Golden Era” heritage of not so long ago.
My fellow Las Vegans, let’s appreciate what made us the great world destination that we’ve become today and save some of our colorful, rich past! Let’s stop scrapping and imploding our history and start preserving it.
I invite you to visit the Clark County Museum on S. Boulder Highway and consider joining the Clark County Museum Guild. The Guild’s mission is to educate and to preserve the rich heritage of Southern Nevada.
