On our coffee table this month,
Greetings From Route 66
Pretty sure that I established what a vintage graphics junkie I am with my linen postcard addiction post a few months ago. Check that out here.
This beauty of a book compiles not only vintage southwestern postcards,………. but pictures, advertisements, promotional calendars, even menus from restaurants along the route.
It’s a keeper.
Route 66 barely passed through the Texas panhandle cutting through Amarillo.
New Mexico was next ………Gallup, at one time Santa Fe, and Albuquerque,
And the northern half of Arizona…like Flagstaff,
If you’re as fascinated with this part of American history as we are, I highly recommend this book..
…or maybe you just like all those scraps of paper – stickers, maps, postcards, menus – that somehow get collected on road trips.
Either way, grab this book.
Amazon has it for about 20 bucks.
I love it! And, wait, what? No copy of “On The Road”?
I’m definitely going to buy this book. I have a photo of me, about 5 y.o., standing by one of the tepees at the motel. I remember spending the night there.
How lucky you are!!!! Aren’t they just the coolest? Have you seen the movie “Cars”? They are updated as hazzard cones…I don’t know that many pople would get that reference.
