Recently I was asked to co-author a short piece about roadside architecture. The basis for the subject was Richard Longstreth’s newly published Road Trip, a 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!
