6 Days 16 Hours Ago

So a lot of old Florida beachside motels are getting demolished. I’ve been lucky enough to get in on some of the salvage and am harvesting these pieces to create an installation. This is the first one from the Ebb Tide...room 27. #floridahistory #motelarchitecture #midcenturymodern

By the looks of the car, I’m guessing this first image was from 1930s or early 40s Hollywood. My favorite old movie years! I like to think this hotel hosted some of those classic movie stars 😉 Hey, a girl can dream.....The Town Motel on Hollywood Boulevard (US 101) “in the heart of Hollywood.” Earthquake proof! . . . . . #hollywood #california #1930s #route101 #ushighway101 #vintageadvertising #vintageillustration #oldsign #vintagemotel #oldpostcard #vintagepostcard #linenpostcard #vintagegraphicdesign #oldmotel #vintagehollywood #vintagecalifornia #fadedhighways #vintagetypography #oldlinenpostcard #motelarchitecture #artdecosign

The fantastic gift shop at Olsen’s Motel on the former U.S. Highway 61 (now Minnesota State 61) in Tofte, Minnesota. This building is still there and is part of our beloved Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts. We love you @bluefinbay. See ya in a few days at Surfside. 💖 . . . . . #ushighway61 #route61 #minnesotastatehighway61 #iloveminnesota #midcenturylife #northshoremn #exploremn #onlyinmn #minnesota #tofte #cookcountymn #bluefinbay #vintagecolorphotography #vintagecolorphoto #fadedhighways #architecture #motelarchitecture #midcenturymotel #northshorescenicdrive

This is the Granada Motel of Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. Atlantic Ave., and oh so close to U.S. 9. It was built in the late 1960s and appears to still be there today as the Granada Ocean Resort. This photo reminds me SO much of the road trip vacations our parents took us on back then. . . . . #wildwoodcrest #newjersey #route9 #ushighway9 #nj #1960s #vintagecolorphotography #kodachrome #midcenturylife #motelarchitecture #fadedhighways #asimplertime #backintheday #vintage #nostalgia #vintagevacation #blue

“Rest assured” at The Jones Tourist Court on U.S. Highway 41 just outside of Cartersville, Georgia. “Well back from the highway” and “clean through and through.” I’m in! . . . #ushighway41 #route41 #cartersville #georgia #cartersvillega #vintagegeorgia #midcenturylife #touristcourt #motelarchitecture #fadedhighways #linenpostcard #vintageadvertising #vintage #vintageillustration #roadsideamericana #vintageroadside #vintagevacation #midcenturygeorgia

Owner-Manager, Dode Davis has quite a place here doesn’t he? This is the adorable Forest Hill Court cottages and rooms in Pacific Grove, California. Back in the day you found it on the Pacific Grove-Carmel Highway, which is today’s 17-Mile Drive. . . . . #pacificgrove #california #vintagecalifornia #midcenturycalifornia #midcenturylife #midcenturyliving #oldmotel #vintagemotel #oldmotorcourt #backintheday #asimplertime #americanroadside #roadsideamericana #vintagetypography #vintagegraphicdesign #vintageadvertising #vintageillustration #nostalgia #midcenturyarchitecture #motelarchitecture #fadedhighways #vintagegraphics 🌻

The abandoned City Center Motel (and a couple of postcard views from happier times) on U.S. 12 and the former U.S. 16 in Mauston, Wisconsin. I took this first picture in 2009 within seconds of the first time driving by it. I still think about it, all these years later. It’s since been demolished. I wrote a blurb about the City Center Motel and posted it over at the link in the bio 😉 if you’re interested. . . . . #ushighway12 #route12 #ushighway16 #route16 #mauston #wisconsin #abandoned #abandonedplaces #vintagemotel #abandonedmotel #midcentury #decay #vintagepostcard #vintageadvertising #vintagetypography #vintageillustration #motelarchitecture #fadedhighways #oldmotel #backintheday #asimplertime #sadness #originalphoto #nofilter #colorphotography #colorphoto #midcenturywisconsin #vintagewisconsin

The modern cottages at the Paradise Tourist Court on U.S. Highway 90 near New Orleans. They had me with the arched entrance and checkerboard floors. I think this an adorable little place 🥰 When I see postcards of these tourist cottages from #backintheday, I’m always reminded of the movie, “It Happened One Night.” Have you seen it? Of course, I love it! It’s a terrific romantic comedy AND road movie! It’s from 1934, it won the Academy Award for Best Picture and stars Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. It will make you smile, I promise. . . . . #ushighway90 #route90 #neworleans #louisiana #touristcourt #touristcottages #midcenturyneworleans #midcenturylife #vintagecollage #vintageillustration #vintageadvertising #oldadvertising #vintagetypography #vintagegraphicdesign #vintage #fadedhighways #vintagemotel #asimplertime #simplertimes #motelarchitecture #roadsidearchitecture #roadsidelouisiana #vintagelouisiana #checkerboardfloor #archedentrance #ithappenedonenight #clarkgable #claudettecolbert

It’s located in an orange grove and has palm trees. That’s all I need right now. 🍊 It’s perfect. 🍊 This is the pretty El Camino Motel on the former U.S. Highway 60 (now CA 60) in Riverside, California. I won’t even bring up the temperature here in Madison right now, I promise. But I need these palm trees in the orange grove at the El Camino immediately. . . . . . #riverside #riversidecalifornia #ca60 #california #route60 #highway60 #linenpostcard #vintageadvertising #vintageillustration #vintagepalmtrees #vintageriverside #midcenturylife #midcenturyliving #midcenturycalifornia #vintagemotel #midcenturydecor #roadsideamerica #motelarchitecture #backintheday #oldpostcards #iwasborntoolate #ilovecalifornia #roadsidearchitecture #fadedhighways

We are supposed to be on the “beautiful, cool, North Shore Drive” ((US 61 back then, Minnesota 61 now) right now and we’re not. I am sad. 😢 It would have been interesting to have stayed at The Elmgren Motor Court #backintheday...as a “hay fever haven” and it’s proximity “away from the high rent area” and all 😊.... . . . . #duluth #minnesota #northshore #iloveminnesota #onlyinmn #highway61 #route61 #oldadvertising #vintageadvertising #vintagemotel #motorcourt #vintagegraphicdesign #vintageillustration #fadedhighways #roadsideamerica #vintageroadside #midcenturylife #vintageminnesota #exploremn #fortheloveofhistory #motelarchitecture #roadsideamericana #iloveduluth #peacefulroadtrip #simplertimes

More on the Scarborough Danish Village Motel... In my old 1931 postcard, an archway can be seen in the center of the motel site, and on the right side of this picture... While most of this old motel has since been demolished... the archway is preserved... as seen on the left, the archway now stands at Memorial Park in Scarborough with a nice information plaque nearby!!! #scarborough #scarboroughme #scarboroughmaine #oldarchway #oldmotel #oldscarborough #danishvillage #olddanishvillage #motelarchitecture #motel #mainemotel #oldmaine

Classic 50s motel architecture! Found this in a collection of old family photos, no idea on date or location! #midcenturymodern #motel #motelarchitecture #australiana

Signage. I love old signage. The fonts had so much more character and edge to them. I find new signage and fonts too slick and somehow bland, as if they are missing a craftsmanship component. Perhaps that is the technological factor. Totally subjective, I know. #signage #signs

Florida Motel on Islamorada Key in August. Wishing everyone calm and strength. #architecturephotography #motelarchitecture #floridakeys
