If you drive along old Route 66 through the tiny Texas town of Alanreed, just before rounding a bend heading westward you'll come across the abandoned Texaco filling station in this 5x7 photograph. Still a looker despite her semi-desertion, the gold-brick "66" Super Service Station was built in 1930 by Bradley Kiser; other than that, I was unable to find anything more about the rather charming Texaco gas station in the photo I had such fun creating.


Photograph Title: Welcome To Alanreed
Print Size: 5x7 with a .2-.4" white border
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Alanreed, Texas, USA


Despite her forsaken state, the 66 Super Service filling station still looks pretty fabulous. The brilliant Texaco green painted onto the door, windows, and gas pump has retained its cheerful vibrance; the underside of the Depression-era station's canopy, painted white, is in very good shape indeed—the paint isn't even peeling.

Though some aspects of the abandoned 1930s filling station are indeed a bit weathered, despite this wear and the grass growing tall around the station, today's Route 66 travellers could be forgiven for momentarily thinking the abandoned filling station remains in business. The deserted Texaco remains neat and trim, even charming, making this a photo sure to bring a smile to our face.

≈ ≈  About Your Limited-Edition Documentary Photograph from Route 66 ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition retro Americana photo you receive will not be watermarked.

• I personally sign & number the back of each art photograph. After 776 prints are made, the edition is closed and the photograph will no longer be available for sale.

• My photos are professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a soft lustre finish to be smudge, fade, and water resistant.

• Very few of my art photographs are a standard print or frame size; thus each print has a slender white border surrounding the photograph itself. This border not only allows you to buy a frame 'off the rack', but serves to lend a bit of additional protection to the actual photograph itself from any serious damage.

• A signed Certificate of Authenticity is included with each photo print.

• Signed photographs are carefully wrapped in acid-free tissue, sandwiched between pieces of foam core, and mailed First Class. Once I have a tracking number, it will be sent to you.

• My monitor is professionally calibrated for colour; therefore, the colours in your received print may be slightly different from what you see displayed online.

As few of my finished photographs are standard frame size, each of my photographic prints has a white border all the way around the image. This not only means you can buy a frame 'off the rack' if you do not want a custom frame, but the white border does protect the image itself from errant fingerprints or other unintentional damage.
Since these photographs are my own interpretation of the sights as seen by me, I am sorry, but I generally will not make a colour photo black & white or vice-versa. Occasionally during post-production I'll be unable to decide which I like better and publish both, but while it does happen, it's not often, and the image I do release is not arbitrary, but the one I think best suits the subject and composition. Thanks for understanding this.
