IMAGES of ROUTE 66
Taken by Jacky & Mike Smith in 2001
The State of Kansas
Old coal mining town - now almost dead
street Galena - very quiet even at midday, mid-week.
There were a few shops still trading, like this car parts store, but the town had a dying feel.
Fading advertisement mural along the main street.
Arch Bridge at Riverton, a few miles from Galena.
Unusually, this bridge is made from poured reinforced concrete, rather than steel girders.
There were a few in Kansas, but this may be the last.
