Route US 66 Road Map
An American Souvenir Historic Route US 66 Road Map is made in the USA. A piece of American history updated for the 84th Anniversary of Route 66 in the year 2010 depicts many icons along the entire length of historic Route 66.

Route 66 runs from the shores of Lake Michigan in Chicago to the Pacific Ocean at Santa Monica, California. It was built under several Federal Aid Highway Acts and was one of the largest public works projects to take place in the United States. Route 66 helped create a distribution of America's population from the areas affected most by the great depression to new areas in the west. From 1945-1965 many unique businesses opened along the route to service the increase travel prompted by the post war economic boom. Motels, restaurants, and novelty shops created miles of neon signs that marked the way of Route 66.

Inset picture to the left shows the front and the back of the map.
