Get Your Kicks…With Vintage Signs from Route 66

On our family’s western travels this summer, we regularly crossed or traveled historic Route 66, as when we visited the beautiful – and beautifully restored – La Posada Hotel in Winslow, Arizona (see photo at left).  So it was great to learn that the Vintage Roadside folks were traveling to the National Preservation Conference in Tulsa by road trip along historic Route 66 – and blogging about it along the way. Vintage Roadside celebrates the “incredible history and advertising graphics of mom and pop businesses from the 1930s through the early 1960s.”  The folks at Vintage Roadside partner with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the sponsors of the National Preservation Conference in Tulsa.  You can also read about their trip on the PreservationNation.org website of the National Trust. So take a look at their blog, order one of their great t-shirts with a roadside sign from America’s past, and get your kicks on Route 66. More to come… DJB
