It's sad that Americans in general demonstrate so little interest in
preserving one of their most unique cultural legacies:
the vanishing American roadscape.
Old motels and motor courts, amusement parks, theatres, diners and eateries,
bowling alleys, skating rinks, signage, etc. are being demolished
faster that you can say 'conspicuous consumption' or 'rabid materialism.'
Of the hundreds of roadside curiosities I've photographed, an astonishing number of them have
been demolished in the past few years. How sad!
It always makes me wonder what I missed, or if there will be anything left in the future besides
homogenized corporate mediocrity. We are no longer the individualists once admired
by such keen observers as Alex de Tocqueville...
