Wednesday, April 2, 2008 Signs of the End

Historic Route 66, made famous by the song, winds from Chicago to LA, more than three thousand miles all the way. The last ten or so miles of it is Santa Monica Boulevard, just down the hill.  Here's the scene where it crosses North Genesee, the Russian neighborhood. This is one of the pawnshops there.  This must be near the end of things.
