Route 66. The name conjures up images from a simpler time. A time before America became generic. Route 66 was quite simply The Main Street of America. A westward wonderland of luminous neon and "mom and pop" establishments servicing a migrating and traveling America. A nation of people with their hearts set on going somewhere. Set on going somewhere west across the immense heartland of America.
Unfortunately, the coming of the Interstate Highway System sealed the fate of Route 66. But like no other icon in American history, Historic US Route 66 lives on within the hearts and memories of people from all over the World. Route 66 was once much more than an old ribbon of varicose asphalt and crumbling Portland Concrete. It was quite simply, and magically remains, America at its finest.
Don't miss this interactive photographic journey along 66. Enjoy over 2000 digital images of the aging icons and relics remaining in all eight Route 66 states along the historic US Highway 66. This book is an informational and educational guide to literally hundreds of "mom and pop" establishments, roadside attractions, historic landmarks and the intricate maze of Historic Route 66 alignments.
Travel the legendary highway from the comfort of your favorite chair. Images are included of rare and hard to access places that most 66 travelers will never experience. View the La Bajada Escarpment, Diamond Creek Road, Cuervo Cutoff, 55th Street Detour, Canyon Padre Bridge and the Ghost Bridge site, as well as several fragile historic alignments along with some remnants of the famed Santa Fe Railroad.
Images of 66 is a must have handbook for the first time Route 66 traveler, while at the same time being an educational manual for the more experienced 66 roadie.
Images of 66 is also a graphic documentation and historical record of what landmarks and artifacts remain along the old 66 in 2006, preserved in vivid color for the benefit of future generations.
