SHINY SHRINERS, LAS VEGAS, 1959

This Is So Many Kinds Of "Yes!"

Shining Shriners

This is so many kinds of “Yes!”

YES to the giant paint-by-number desert sky.

YES to this bizarre brotherhood of man who, for as far as the eye can see, proudly prance in unison.

YES to the fanciful façade of the short-lived Silver Palace and sky-scraping blade sign that, in case anyone forgets, reminds them what city they’re in, on this, the most electrified main street in the USA.

And YES to those uniform festive fezzes, sunshiny satin shirts and poofy pantaloons that are beautifully color coordinated to the City of Sin they are marching through!

Here’s to Shiners marching and matching Fabulous Las Vegas…YES!
