New Orleans, LA
The Mother Road
This is a photograph of a portion of the original Route 66 Highway located near Miami, Oklahoma. It was constructed in 1922 of a concrete base with a thin layer of asphalt on the surface. It is only 9 feet wide because so few cars traveled on the road that they would get off onto the gravel shoulder to pass. It is still driveable today. The lines marking the edge of the road are constructed of poured concrete.
