Ken Turmel - Route 66 Postmark Art

The first and original Historic Route 66 Artwork Document that travelled city to city during a two year adventure along the entire length of the Mother Road from Chicago to Los Angeles.

Noted landrunner and postmark artist, Ken Turmel, accumulated over 28,600 miles of cross-country travel in order to acquire all of the special commemorative "pictorial postmarks" on Route 66, that were officially issued by the U.S. Postal Service during the 70th Anniversary of Route 66, from 1995 to 1997. Many of these postmarks are no longer available. One post office in particular, in Cadiz, CA. has already closed down, and its postmark is now lost in time. It is very possible that more post offices will close their doors in the future. This was the historic importance of capturing all of the Route 66 postmarks onto one piece of art, during the last years of the 1900's.

Put on some road-music and go surfing down Route 66!  Enjoy road icons like the Chain of Rocks Bridge, Blue Whale of Catoosa, Pops, and Blue Swallow Motel - all shown in fresh new ways - plus scenes that have been overlooked for 80 years. Oh, and be prepared for an occasional outrageous caption that may figure into a trivia question later.

Route 66 becomes a very long work of art at  Photographer Frank Gifford (no relation to the ex-football player) showcases its icons, signs, ruins, vehicles and people in more than 1,000 Route 66 images. All are exclusively available through the site as art-quality photographs, and more than half are captioned for T-shirts, mugs and other merchandise.

You can literally spend hours exploring a wealth of American road, car, gas station and sign photographs in full-screen beauty. The neon section alone has more than 100 images.  Plus there's a Blog with extensive travel and photographic information, even a "Fun!" section with loopy road-questions.

In Stefanie's own words...

"In the summer of 2009 I took my first trip down part of Route 66. I discovered the Supai Motel and fell in love. I have been chasing neon signs ever since hoping to capture the beauty and art of the Mother Road and it's era."

Stefanie's has a great talent for spotting what makes a beautiful image. There's not an image in her Route 66 collection that I wouldn't hang in my home - fantastic!

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
