Great stuff!!!! thanks for posting–love the "roadfood" pics—CARS and FOOD and TRAVEL—-this site was bound to end up being spotted by someone from here!!
Hope you found the websites interesting, Bushie. After going through the book more thoroughly this evening I found several or more photos of autos in fronts of various spots I recall having seen mentioned in Roadfood posts. Am sure I recall reading posts re Geno’s cheesesteaks in Philadelphia. I particularly noticed photo of it because car in photo is a black ’59 Chevrolet convertible which is exactly the first automobile I ever owned. Then I notice several photos with Missouri (including Springfield and Jopliin) and Oklahoma restaurants in the backgrounds. Thought you might be familiar with some of them, but unfortunately can’t flip to any of those pages right now. And there are photos of a number of places on throughout the west and in California.
Thanks, Liketoeat!!! [:)]
If any of you have any interests in roads, highways, cars, route 66 and various old sites along it which linger in memories, in various diners across the country, etc. – these subjects in addition to the subject of Roadfood itself – then you might be interested in some of the publications of Lucinda Lewis, Photographer/Car Culture/Machine Age (I’m not certain as to how these various firm titles intertwine). Anyway, Lucinda is a California photographer who has traveled the US doing fabulous photography of the subjects I’ve mentioned in the first sentence above. I’ve ordered her annual calendars for the past 10 to 12 years and couple of years ago purchases her great new photography (and text) book "Roadside America" which more extensively covers these same subjects (the year it was published it was rated by Time Magazine and several auto magazines as one of the top books of the year for Christmas giving). I just yesterday received one of her new publications, "Roadside America 365 days", which could be called a coffee table book or the most elegant desk calendar you’ve ever seen. Its a hardcover book with 365 photo pages each faced by a date page with space for making notes if one wishes. The reason I’m writing this is that I just finished perusing it and am so amazed at/favorably impressed with this work that I thought if any of you had similar interests beyond roadfood, that you too might be interested in some of her works. Tho I’ve occasionally seen her calendars in stores, don’t believe her works are that generally available in retail outlets. Please be assured that I am not a relative of, not an employee of, have never met, have no connection with Lucinda Lewis or anyone in any of her firms (thought I’m surely impressed with this one lady who is the order taker when you call to place an order; how many other firms do you know which you call once a year to place an order and at which the order taker recognizes your voice; true in this case). Anyway, anyone who is interested in any of Cindy Lewis’ works can see them at http://www.cindylewisphoto.com and clicking on "licensed products" or by just going directly to http://www.carculture.com and clicking on the various segments of that website. I apologize in advance if my posting this offends anyone, but it’s just a case of my wanting to share with any others with similar interests some things which I so enjoy (and some of which are indirectly related to the subject of the Roadfood Forums). Thanks.
