Out exploring on the moto, I stopped at a neat old tourist court to snap some pics of my bike and the gas station.  For those folks too young to remember tourist courts, they were basically roadside hotels that had amenities close by – gas, food, etc.  From the places I’ve seen or read about, they were basically little bungalows tucked in at the side of the roadway.  Supposedly, this place had nefarious visitors in the form of Bonnie and Clyde….

Had to give it a retro touristy feel, of course; hope you don’t mind!

  1. Very retro, indeed, Derrick! All it needs is a vulture!

  2. I like the great retro and touristy feel you gave to it. Those old tourist courts and motels fascinate me. (Too much Psycho, maybe…lol!)

  3. I love, love love this photograph, Derrick! Now that is a Texas sign.


  4. I loved this before I caught the background!
    Now it’s just all the more fascinating!
