Description

For a century the route of Highway 99 has been the main transportation corridor in Western Washington. Forest and farm products, fish and families have all been part of the flow of business and recreational travel between the Canadian border at Blaine and the Columbia River at Vancouver. What is now Highway 99 originated as a loose network of muddy roads connecting early settlements. With the dawn of the Automobile Age and construction of good roads, travel for business and pleasure began to shift away from ships and railroads to trucks and family cars. Roadside services developed within and between towns to cater to the new type of travelers - as many as 1,300 "gas, food and lodging" businesses lined Highway 99, ranging from primitive auto camps to luxury hotels; from simple burger stands to roadside eateries shaped like giant tepees and igloos.

Chuck Flood has assembled a collection of over 200 vintage photos and postcards to present a virtual road trip down Washington's Highway 99. Though many early businesses are now gone, about 80 percent of the old highway is still drivable and the curious motorist will find abundant reminders of when travel was an adventure.
