Something unknown, most likely a tree, has torn a gaping hole in the wooden logs of the long-abandoned tourist cabin in this documentary Route 66 photograph showing what remains of John's Modern Cabins in Missouri.

Built in the 1930s as nothing but a humble motor court for travellers, the cabins have become an icon of America's Mother Road, Old Route 66. Sadly, though Route 66 is enjoying a revival, it is unlikely that these abandoned, heavily dilapidated cabins will ever return to their intended use. Abandoned since the late 1970s, the famous old tourist court is slowly returning to nature, bit by bit.


Photograph Title: The Wound
Print Size: 11x14 with a 1.05-1.47" white border; please ask about additional sizes
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Newburg, Missouri, USA


To the left of the green-roofed cabin with a mortal wound in its side, the corner of another cabin partially frames the photo, its logs stacked one atop the other. In the gap between the two cabins, old pallets and a torn-apart leather chair filled with horsehair—possibly from the 1940s or 1950s, the heyday of the Mother Road—rest amidst the grass and fallen leaves; we can see cinderblocks holding up the rear corner of the damaged cabin.

Partially obscured by the cabin on the left side of the photo's, an outhouse—'modern' indeed!—tilts slightly forward and to one side, resting just behind the cabin featuring an enormous hole in its wall. We can see two handsome trees rising up behind the damaged, dilapidated cabin, their branches extending over the wounded cabin as if to protect it, the brand-new spring leaves forming the beginning of a pretty, bright green canopy. The rusty John's Modern Cabins neon Deco-style sign hangs in the distance, above the cabin behind the damaged one, nestled closer to the right side of the photograph.

The years of gleaming steel and chrome land yachts zipping by on the Mother Road, pulling over for a night's sleep, are gone; only those wishing to pay their respects and consider our past pay the cabins in this Mother Road photo a visit, hoping each time that they remain standing for one more generation.

≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Abandoned Route 66 Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition documentary photo of the Mother Road 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 abandoned America photographs are professionally printed at the highest resolution on archival photo paper with a matte 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 roadside Americana 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.
