SOCIETY FOR COMMERCIAL ARCHEOLOGY DONATES ARCHIVES TO ALEXANDER ARCHITECTURAL ARCHIVES
The Society for Commercial Archeology (SCA) has initiated the donation of our archives to Alexander Architectural Archives, Architecture & Planning Library at The University of Texas at Austin. Students will process the pieces as school work during the Fall semester 2017, which coincidently is the 40th anniversary of the SCA.
2016 Falling by the Wayside list announced!
The nominations received for this year’s Falling By the Wayside list illustrate threats to all kinds of resources. From service stations to signs and restaurants to motor courts, all of America’s roadside is under threat. The 2016 nominations also illustrate the fact that the threat affecting the country’s roadside is truly a nationwide phenomenon. The nominees this year came from Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Colorado, and Hawaii, showing that the problem literally stretches from coast to coast and beyond.
So, in order to bring awareness to the threats that continue to affect our roadside resources, may we present the 2016 Falling By the Wayside list:
Lincoln Motor Court
Lincoln Motor Court – Mann’s Choice, PA
Log Cabin Grill – Rochester, MN
Lihue Motor Service Station – Lihue, HI
