Now back to this final section of website updates. This has been a long slog and it gets longer every year. But I consider it a responsibility to keep my website as current as possible. Even though doing this for more than 2700 pages every year is pretty nuts.
This will be a quickie post to finish things off. The mcm section is nearly 500 pages but I only have a few more places to mention.
The former Hill Top Motel in Belmar, NJ (later Rodeway Inn) is gone now:
These signs had been replaced around 2010:
This motel in Reno, NV is gone now. The sign was saved by a collector for possible display in town later on:
After two fires in 2019, the Memorial Drive Church of Christ in Tulsa, OK was demolished in 2020:
In 2021, this building in Tulsa at the Tulsa Tech’s Lemley Campus was also demolished:
The Shandon Florist building in Columbia, SC was demolished in 2020:
And that’s it!!!! The next posts will be more positive (stuff that still exists) but you won’t hear from me for a few weeks. I’ll be doing a little Northern California 4-day trip in early May and I’ll post some photos here then after that. Then, this blog will be very quiet until I get home in July from the June mega trip (five weeks in Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas, etc.).
In closing, a few reminders. You can always find earlier blog posts here by clicking on the back arrow links in the yellow area below the posts. Or in the brown area below that, you can go back thru the archives by month. I just realized I’ve been doing these posts since 2006!
And don’t forget about the Flickr stuff — I post about 10 photos per roadtrip day there (different from the photos here at these blog posts).
And then, if your an Instagram fan, you might want to tag along in early May and then in June since I post a few photos every night there when I’m on the road.
