Cowboy Motel3619 E. Amarillo Blvd., Amarillo, TX
I wonder who dreamed up the designs all the vintage motel signs along Route 66. At any rate, this old cowboy was still watching the road in 2012 when we snapped this photo. I like the stars on the upright panel. The Cowboy received a permit to install a swimming pool in 1956, the pool is long gone.
Del Camino Motel
NOTE: The postcard shows the garages between the guest rooms
and a much more modest sign. It's interesting the the back of the card
refers to the business as a "court" as well as a motel. The
style is much more in line with the court concept, so I'm guessing the
postcard was published at a time when the term "court" was
giving way to the more modern term "motel"
