Rubbish Tuesday


Finally a home for all those photos I take of old items!!

Continuing with our travels along Route 66 featuring iconic motel signs and other landmarks.

November and December 2012 saw us taking our first winter sojourn away from cold and snowy Toronto. We drove across from Toronto to (eventually) Los Angeles and back in the spring of 2013. We made many stops along the towns of Route 66 on interstate 40.

Winter 2013 and spring 2014 saw us do the same trip but we took interstate 10, further south from Route 66.

A trip to Chicago gave us another Route 66 photo op.

In earlier years we had taken many vacations in California which also led to some Route 66 icons.

I am enjoying doing these posts as I research the hotels and motels along the way and learn many new things.
Wikipedia is usually my source.

The Glancy - Clinton OK
Blue Swallow Motel - Tucumcari NM
Wigwam Motel - Rialto CA
Holbrook AZ


December 2012 - McLean TX

These photos were taken at the Devil's Rope Barbed Museum. 



I am posting the Route 66 exhibits to continue my theme, however, next week I'll post some of the barbed wire displays.
Besides barbed wire (and there is a lot) they have some Route 66 relics.
