About Road Notes

SCA Road Notes has four regular features:

  • Five Favs – contributors promote their top commercial archeology selections for a place (such as a city or highway), roadside topic (such as motels or diners), or artist’s portfolio (paintings or photos);
  • Sign Snippets – Debra Jane Seltzer covers vintage signs that have recently been restored, adapted, removed, or destroyed;
  • In Brief – features condensed versions of important commercial archeology articles submitted by SCA members; and
  • Editor’s Column – Douglas Towne touches on underreported roadside topics and people.

The SCA News has been edited by Douglas Towne since 2004 and designed by Victor Bokas since 2018.
