Mid-Century Mundane Takes a Road Trip!

IMG_1738Recently I was asked to co-author a short piece about roadside architecture. The basis for the subject was Richard Longstreth’s newly published Road Tripa book that features 1970s historical photographs of road side architecture including gas stations, motels, drive-ins, and shopping centers. Pictured above is a Phillips 66 station outside Fredericksburg, VA, the canopy of which is just visible in one of Richard’s photographs.

Since some of these typologies are not often featured on Mid-Century Mundane, I gladly agreed to participate. Read the travelogue here!
