Google has whupped up their "book search" application by adding a ton of old magazines to the index. A cursory query for "vegas" found the infamous Vegas World VIP Vacation advertisement from the May 1983 issue of Popular Science.

Below is a screen grab, the full zoomable version is here.

Popular Science looks at the technology inside the "brand new Luxor" and other Vegas resorts (April 1994) and a similar article about the Stardust from Popular Mechanics (February 1960)
