Trying to be helpful, I suggested that the architect who steals my covers might want to emulate these fine examples. It seems he's a little stubborn and not open to new ideas.
Amazingly, the Great Wall is still standing. It looks much the same in the street view, but it was closed in 2010. Here's a link to the street view and to a photo on Flickr with commentary on the restaurant.
The Sands was designed by Architect Wayne McAllister and built in 1952. In its heyday, it was the place to be. It was the place where Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford first appeared on stage together. At one point, the Sands was owned by Howard Hughes. By 1996, despite the addition of a large tower, it had lost its appeal and was imploded and demolished. The Venetian was built in the same location after the Sands was demolished. It looks like this now. Makes the Sands look kind of quaint in comparison.
