about

A loving tribute to American roadside and advertising architecture from a lifelong enthusiast with a unique collection of photography.

With a focus on vernacular roadside architecture built between 1920 and the late 1960s, Road Trip is a time capsule of an extraordinary era and its roadside buildings, restaurants, gas stations, motels, and places of amusement, most of which are now long since gone.
Richard Longstreth is a professor at George Washington University, where he directs the program in historic preservation, and is the author of numerous books and articles.

Editorial Reviews

"Armed with a Nikon F, the architectural historian [Richard Longstreth] shot them all, coast-to-coast, on Kodachrome film for slides, through the 1970s and into the mid-1980s. The 200 images in his book are rich in color - and in nostalgia and wonder that will beckon readers of all ages." -Architects and Artisans"From hamburger joints to drive-ins, this is an entertaining and, in its own way, sad trip down memory's blacktop lane." -The Chicago Tribune
