Los Angeles photographer Russell Olsen presents his multivolume book Route 66 Lost & Found: Ruins and Relics Revisited, which compares current photos of Route 66 with postcard images from the heyday of the road.
Featuring 225 sites along the Mother Road, vintage Route 66 postcards and historic Route 66 photographs bring the celebrated highway to life. All of these sites and structures are shown as they appeared during their mid-century heydays—in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s—and as they appear today, in the twenty-first century. Detailed maps guide modern-day highway travelers to these historic Route 66 locations.
Through powerful imagery, maps, and stories, Olsen offers a unique, state-by-state look at the “Main Street of America.”
