Whiskly in the Jar
Route 66 - America’s mother road - provided an escape from the poverty of the 1930s dust bowl Midwest for hundreds of thousands searching for the American Dream in California. Mom and pop motels, stores, diners, and gas stations battled for custom using incredible neon signs. As Route 66 was bypassed by bigger and faster highways, customers stopped coming and businesses failed. Many of the signs remain on abandoned sections of the highway... sunbleached and sandblasted by desert winds. Ghosts of the past faded American pop art.
