Gold Milk sign along Route 66 Tulsa being dismantled.
Tulsa, OK - As first reported in February, the
Meadow Gold Milk
sign that has been a fixture along Route 66 in Tulsa for decades
is being relocated from its current spot at 11th and Lewis. Word
is the sign will be moved to another spot along the historic Mother
Road for all to enjoy for years to come.
However, historic preservations still need funding to finance this
restoration and location of this grand sign. Please see our Preservation
Alley's section on the Meadow
Gold for more details on how you can help.
Many thanks to Chris King for first reporting this on June
says goodbye to yet another bowling alley treasure. Java Lanes unplugged
after over 40 years.
Long Beach, CA - It's official. The plug has been
pulled on the fantastic Polynesian themed bowling alley Java
Lanes. Despite a concerted effort around the clock by historic
preservationists to save this treasure, Java Lanes closed down on
June 1, 2004. Unbelievable.
Many thanks to Adriene Biondo and Andre Eubanks for this update.
A brief update from
Las Vegas, NV - Here's a brief update from this
past weekend in Las Vegas. All that's left of the Glass
Pool Inn on Las Vegas Boulevard is the marquee. The lot is fenced
off and the lot is bare.
There is no sign of any remnants from the Tam
O'Shanter Motel. Looks like work to prepare the lot for the
Venetian expansion is on track.
The La Concha Motel
marquee and lobby still stands, however the marquee wasn't lit up.
The hotel itself has been demolished. The Silver City Casino next
door has also been leveled and work building a convenience store
is well underway.
