November 11 is the date in 1926 when Route 66 was sprung on the traveling public. Route 66 is 88!. Not bad for a highway “decommissioned” in 1985.
Because of the tremendous and ongoing contribution to the “Route 66 in Arizona: Don’t Forget Winona!” Flickr site that we set up in conjunction with our on-line exhibit and blog site, I just wanted to announce we’ll be analyzing your contributions to see what in fact are representative images of Route 66 in Arizona. We have well more than 2,000 images at the Flickr site, and so plenty to tabulate.
Meanwhile, Take a look at the Cline Library’s other exhibits, including our new John Running exhibit here.
The Cline Library’s “Route 66 in Arizona: Don’t Forget Winona!” exhibit closed Friday, August 13, 2010.
The digital exhibit lives on and can be viewed by following the link below. You may still vote on our polls, and enjoy the linked Flickr site. Thanks for participating.
