Truxton Cafe

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 11 April 2014 in Documentary & Street.

A few miles west of Peach Springs brings you to the sad little town of Truxton. The Truxton Cafe looks to have been closed a long time.

The Mother Road
US Route 66

My Spotlighted Images

I'll be busy the next few weeks. Commenting will be spotty at best.

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

The boat is also a bit of it looking that the repair would be necessary.

May be closed, but certainly preserved, the paint on the walls is still good. This reportage is the memory of the route 66. Great shot, I like a lot.
Good weekend.

Yes, there is definitely an air of abandonment and disrepair in this shot Steve! Nicely captured! ;-)

The tall growth in the parking area reinforces your opinion that its been closed a long time. Nice shot of it. Makes one wonder about the former times.

I guess you didn't get a Road 66 coffee there anymore, Steve !!! all looks kind of desperate --- and it must have been soooo busy at one time.
Thanks for sharing, I enjoy --- Kindest regards Monika

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

It is remarkable how activity seems to have languished in an other time busy road. A reminder that very few things should be taken as granted and how fortunes (little ones) can turn so fast. This series shows this plenty. Excellent historical cruise.

Looks real sad left like that . . even the echoes of happy voices have faded away.

People still living there Steve? What kind of life is that I wonder?

Excellent shot. Interesting how the grass is starting to grow up through the gravel. Soon to be reclaimed by nature.

A pity that a tour company is not taking all such places over and restore them. They can bring in the visitors! And cash!
