I photographed this slot machine in Virginia City, Nevada, about 30 years ago. That would have been in the mid-1980s. I wasn’t sure who the woman depicted was supposed to be, but I’ve been told several times since that it was Marilyn Monroe. If you know, please let me know.
The last time I was in Virginia City, about five years ago, I couldn’t find any old, mechanical slots like this. They’re all gone, replaced with boring, digital machines. Too bad. Ones like this had a lot more character.
