OLD MOTOR COURTS - Welcome to my photo site. After reading Margaret Regan's
article "Night Lights" in the Spring 2004 TUCSON GUIDE extolling the
beauty of Tucson's old motor courts, I decided to "hit the road" and
find some of these old neon gems while they're still here. In some cases, the
lights have already dimmed on the signs, but luckily there are still quite a few
left serving the motoring public.

SIGNS - Welcome to Gassigns.org, the online collection of gasoline logos

they be forgotten in the world of ever-changing gasoline brands.

AMERICA - It began as a trip...and a book...and it became a business. On

affectionately referred to for several years as "The Pie Trip."
The trip covered all 50 states, over 2,500 towns, and over 29,000 miles.
We are writing a book about the experience.
ARCHITECTURE - Roadside Architecture is one of my life-long passions. When I
go off to agility trials on the weekends with my dogs, I try to squeeze in
side-trips to check out unusual buildings, mini golfs, muffler men, etc. My
traveling range is usually limited to the Northeast but you will find plenty
of things included that are outside this area as well.
DEVIL'S PROMENADE AND SPOOK LIGHT - NEAR JOPLIN, MISSOURI - Twelve miles
southwest of Joplin, Missouri, a roughly paved road runs through a narrow
canyon. This nearly forgotten track runs across the Oklahoma border but is only
about four miles long. Nearby is the former border village of Hornet, and close
to that is the site of what once was a spook light museum. The place is remote
and far from civilization, so why do so many people come here?
