Meet me at the 8 Ball for some tasty tobacco candy.
Highway 54, Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri.
Our place sort of looked like the second pic today as my wife was prepping a couple dozen split white oak baskets to sell in our flea market booth and I was taking pics of several new hats. The Indian jewelry was a given...
Blow Fly.... doesn't sound appealing, lol.
Blow Fly? Don't bother me...
Passed by this place on US route 78 in the town of Heflin, AL about halfway between Birmingham and Atlanta and had to pull in and check it out. The lack of functioning neon on the sign was obviously not hindering business in any way. One of the best chocolate malts in recent memory.
Liquor breakfast? Sure, why not? (Unless I order live bait later on)
Near Branson, Missouri.
"Fracking" back in the day ...
Pottery and baskets? My wife is pulling over.
Even a barber! Wall Drug's got nothing on this place.
Hmmm ... I wonder what sort of things they sell in there. Hooker, Missouri. (Waiting for the jokes ...)
I wonder if those 19¢ burgers were any good.
Hey, they have hats! And it appears to be a Stuckey's, so pecan logs.
Four cents better than McD's.
1963, Route 66, Newburg, Missouri.
Reminds me of Mix's Trading Post down in Utica, IL, with a hodgepodge of just about every kind of roadside trinketry from biker gear, to knives/antiques, and even DIY leatherworks supplies. It's a must-stop every time I make a trip down to hike at Starved Rock State Park or Matthiessen State Park.
About all you need to know ... (Rt. 66 near Richland, Missouri).
Looks like the structure might have started life as a McDonald’s. Or was heavily “inspired” by it.
Rock Court Cafe, Rock Court Texaco Station, and Rock Court Motel, about 1/2 mile east of Lebanon, Missouri on Route 66 in the mid 1950's.
There's roadside attractions...and then there's ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS...and nothing will get me to pull over faster than a giant dinosaur. This past weekend I found the original Goony Golf, opened in 1961, on old U.S. 11 in Chattanooga, TN.
Founded by Dutch McGrath, a traveling salesman who "borrowed" some ideas from a place in Florida called Goofy Golf, there were locations all over the Eastern U.S. by the mid 80s. Today only 3 remain... this one, one in Knoxville, TN, and one in Lake George, NY.
