Question: Art Deco Advertisement

From: The Stutzmans  

This is probably a weird request, but there is a print located in the Sunset Cafe at the Sunset Station Casino in Henderson, NV that I would love to find.  It is a print of an (for lack of a better word) advertisement for the Pacific Railroad.  It looks like it was created for the early '20s, maybe, because of the way the couple depicted on the print are dressed .... and the lettering is Art Deco.  It includes encouraging travel to the Grand Canyon.  Can you tell me what this is and where I might find a copy?  Nobody there seemed to know anything about it ... I'm sure the architect of the casino made the selection ... the Sunset Cafe has a railroad motif.  

Thanks for your help ...
