As the treasured Las Vegas of her youth fades, a Meadow City daughter discovers some promising change.
NEARLY 50 YEARS have passed since I went to sleep every night in the slant-roofed room at the top of the stairs on Seventh Street in Las Vegas. One twin bed was mine, the other my grandma Celia’s, one on either side of the window above the porch. Night after night, Grandma would tuck me in after my mother had kissed me good night, reciting her prayers as I fell asleep. To the light of candles, she would pray the rosary in Spanish, read aloud to me about the lives of the saints, and otherwise do her best to ensure my eventual entry into heaven. When I was a little girl, the house was my world. It was where my brother and I were raised, where my mother and her brothers and sisters grew up and where my grandmother, Celia Gallegos Wallace, had lived for most of her life. Her mother, Vicenta Garcia de Gallegos, bought the house after sending her husband into exile for reasons that were never discussed. My mother’s opinion was that her grandmother could not stand a man who had trouble collecting a paycheck.
