"El Don Motel" Route 66, Albuquerque New Mexico - 2017


This cool vintage neon and bulb motel sign of a horseback-riding cowboy tossing a lariat is located on the historic Route 66 in downtown Albuquerque.


Motels along Central Avenue thrived in the mid-20th century, but when Interstate 40 opened, tourists went elsewhere. As a result, many Route 66 motels went belly up and were abandoned and their signs have been lost forever, others became deteriorating havens for drug dealers, prostitutes, and other unsavory folks. Efforts are being made to try to restore and preserve what is left of the old Route 66 buildings, nostalgic signage, and Americana history in Albuquerque.
