Overview

Now Russell Olsen’s best-selling collections featuring Route 66 filling stations, main streets, motor courts, cafés, campgrounds, honky-tonks, truck stops, and barbecue joints as they appeared both in their heyday and today is available in one package.

For more than 30 years, Route 66 was America’s main east-west artery, pointing the nation toward all the promise that California represented. To serve these travelers, Route 66 boasted bustling commercial hubs, many of which remain today, many more of which crumbled long ago. All of the sites included here—150 in all—are shown both during their mid-century heydays and as they appear today. Taken together, the marvelous visual and descriptive elements assembled here—period postcards and imagery, specially commissioned maps, and Olsen’s own photography and capsule histories of the sites featured—comprise a unique, state-by-state look back at America’s Main Street.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This quality book does it all: takes you on a magical memory trip along what was once the main east-west artery of the nation stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles, tells the stories of the filling stations, small towns, motor courts, cafes, honky-tonks and other traveler services along the fabled Route 66 and show you what remains….This would be a fabulous gift for anyone who ever traveled Route 66 especially for highway history, vintage car or classic RV buffs. Imagine parking outside a restored 1940’s-era motor court in our 1949 Ford. Sounds like fun.” -- Escapees, Nov/Dec 2008

“Author Russell A. Olsen has been exploring and photographing Route 66 since 1995. After collecting postcards and archival photos of route 66 landmarks in their heyday, he traveled along the route, recording what is there now. The result is a remarkable contribution to the history of Route 66.” -- RV Life, Nov/Dec. 2008
