SUN FILE PHOTO A 1964 aerial view of the Las Vegas Strip shows the Desert Inn and New Frontier hotels. The control tower-like Landmark hotel wouldn't open until 1968 after it was purchased by Howard Hughes. Hughes himself would come to live in the penthouse suite of the Desert Inn in 1966, where he would negotiate purchases that would change the face of Las Vegas.
