Random Photo Fridays - Route 66 GAS

It was another, slow down / pull over kind of moments while driving through the small town of Truxton on Route 66. Opposite the historic Frontier Motel (yes I took photos of that too) was the Barker Apartments, Bar and Gas Station... The Frontier Motel and Cafe was bought by Ray and Mildred Barker in 1957. Ray died in 1990 and Mildred continued to run the cafe until shortly before her death in 2012. Since our visit in 2012 the motel, bar and gas station have been bought by a tour operator from New Zealand and the motel is to be refurbished and due to open this year...
