I don't remember exactly where, in Nagasaki, I was when this showed up in a shop window. I'm always surprised by the popularity of this long decommissioned highway.

The name of the route does have surprising ability to persist over many years. A fine capture of this sign.

Great capture, Steve. The song is played in our house once in a while - Harald, my husband, hitchhiked the 66 years ago in the middle of the summer and figured, he wouldn't last any longer in the heat .... when finally a truck driver took pity and gave him a ride .............. If its very hot here, we both they ....... Route 66 !!!
Thanks for sharing, kindest regards and a nice Sunday MN
