This small building was apparently a gas station/garage years ago. More
recently it was a barber shop according to a local resident who kindly
took a few minutes to chat with us about the neighborhood. I'm guessing
that the building predates a widening of the street some years ago since
the streetlight pole is so close to the garage door and there is no curb
cut for a driveway.
About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane
road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned
lanes are still there.
