Route 66 Then and Now®

#ad
Pavilion #ad - Gas stations, motels, and diners all had to compete for business and what better way to attract attention than with a wacky feature such as a wigwam motel, an iceberg cafe, or a whale-themed diner. Route 66 then and now revisits some of these bizarre and not-so-bizarre structures to see what’s left before time takes its toll.

The ‘mother road’ or the ‘will Rogers Highway’ has been open since 1926. Its heyday was the wwii and post-war era and many roadside structures sprang up to cater for the "tin-can tourists" making the journey from East to West. Some, have been preserved on the national historic register; others, such as the Aztec Motel in Albuquerque, such as the Magnolia Service Station in Kansas, are still doing a thriving business; while others have simpy vanished from the landscape.

Louis, lebanon, Springfield, Joplin. Kansas: galena, Baxter Springs. Oklahoma: Catoosa, Tulsa, Sayre. Texas:shamrock, Amarillo, Glenrio. New mexico: santo Domingo, Gravel Hill, Albuquerque.
