This was a pretty busy piece of property.

Many businesses cycled through the Overland Hotel building.

Shown on the right is the "slots only"
Overland Arcade which is listed in
Fuller's Index as opening April 21, 1948 and listed in the phone books through 1954.

Next to the Overland Arcade is
Wing's Cafe and right behind the parade of horses is the second location
of the Las Vegas Club.

...Up at Main and Fremont, from the
Nevada Bar and on the north end of it was
the old Hotel Overland, which was controlled
by John P. Wisner.....
