Traveling East to West from downtown Chicago to the Santa Monica Pier. This book captures in pictures the exciting ride with a few side trips along the way, just as you would have done in the 50’s and 60’s while on a family vacation. Enjoy the road, the history, the cars, and the museums along the way.
Take a trip down Route 66 viewing over 750 photos taken along the route in celebration of the 90th anniversary 1926 – 2016. A piece of Americana at its best as you experience the ‘Mother Road’ of American History.
Route 66 celebrates 90 years of providing America with travel from Chicago to Los Angeles in 2016. Many of the nostalgic sights along the route have vanished and many more are in danger of deterioration.
There are many communities across the 8 states that have embraced the spirit of the Historical Route 66. Within these communities there is an American pride that cannot be hidden. The photos I’ve taken along the way are provided to help maintain a history of what is on Route 66 in 2016. I only wish that I had taken this trip a decade ago to catch the fever and spirit of what is becoming a ‘Vanishing Historical Route 66’.
Enjoy the photo journal as together we travel along the ‘Mother Road’.
