On a curving Missouri segment of Route 66 between Springfield and Carthage lies what is left of Spencer, a cheery bit of which we see here in this documentary art photo. A red, white, and blue metal Holsum bread door sign proclaims that the store behind the door offers "Fresh Holsum Bread"; it seems that the sign doesn't realize that though the old stone building's walls still stand, there is no roof!

Sights like this aren't all that unusual along 66, but this was prettily perfect: the warm russets and creams of the stone walls and the weathered door frame just inside the screen contrasting with that charming, brand-new screen door bright blue Holsum bread sign...all beneath a perfect cerulean spring sky.


Photograph Title: Fresh & Holsum
Print Size: 8x12 with a .45-.54"ish white border; please ask about additional sizes
Photograph Orientation: Horizontal
Photograph Taken In: Spencer, Missouri, USA


Founded in 1876, Spencer, Missouri was a ghost town by the time Titanic sank in 1912; it was with the birth of Route 66 that Spencer came to life with a dry goods store, a small supermarket, a filling station and auto body shop (of course!) and a barbershop. Sadly, after the opening of I-44, fewer and fewer cars rumbled over the 1923 "pony bridge" crossing Johnson Creek into Spencer, and the town (townlet?) faded into silence once again.

Though Spencer is still a bit of a ghost town, with just a handful of buildings, it is my hope and the hope of many other "Routies" that the new owners of this row of old stone shops can turn them into yet another marvellous stopping-point for those journeying along the Mother Road. As they've already spruced up the rock buildings with new doors and windows, as well as vintage signs like the pretty red, white, and blue Holsum bread door ad, it seems to me that these 1920s buildings are in good hands!

≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ About Your Limited-Edition Route 66 Wall Art Photograph ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈ ≈

• The limited-edition 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 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 Route 66 wall 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.

Reviews

5 out of 5 stars (16)

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.
