If You Want Americana....

Go here. You will spend a great deal of time there. He is an accomplished writer and has spent a great deal of time researching our past. Americana. Before anywhere you go it all looks the same.

Oh, and if he can whip old photos and illustrations like this out with his captions added, so much the better!

I hoped that in his postcards of motels he had The Blu-Vue from my home town. Sadly he did not. I think a Costco or some such is there now. 

You will go down the rabbit hole and you will be impressed!

  2. Lileks is a national treasure. I sent him a poscard image of the motel my parents owned when I was a kid, he never got around to adding it.
