How I like places like this! Good captured, Marilyn

Kind regards

Marilyn Whiteley on March 13, 2008

Thank you, Christian and Rafal. I saw bits of "Route 66" yesterday, but this was hundreds of kilometers north of it, but it does have the same "feel," doesn't it? Marilyn

Does not work? There are no problems! We repair all for $50!

Here is the reason for which I know the Route 66. A mythical road isn't it? Cheers. Christian

Marilyn Whiteley on March 13, 2008

The Grapes of Wrath was a powerful picture, and I'm glad to see that website. But US #66 was a very real road that also achieved mythical status. Long years ago, when I was a girl, we used to take part of Route 66 in Illinois and Missouri when we went to visit my grandmother, and in 1953 we took a good bit of its southwest section when we drove to visit my aunt and uncle in California. Now the big Interstate highway system has replaced it, and you can see traces just here and there. Cheers, Marilyn

Thank you for your testimony. If you took this road in 1953, it is thus that you are still a young girl ;-) Cheers. Christian

Young at heart but not at knee ... Cheers, Marilyn

As long as the index remains flexible to take photos... And as long as you keep the humor of your twenty years everything is well ... Cheers, Christian

It's good to hear from you, Claudia, and Tony. And thank you for your further words, Christian.

This might be a victim of the "oil crisis" of several decades ago. Cheers, Marilyn

A year later, a wild grape vine is wrapping itself around the old gas pump.

Richard Campbell on July 8, 2009

Thanks for the link to your gas pump. This photo just demonstrates that 'abandoned' does not mean forgotten. There's always a photographer to bring it to life.
