Long Description:
Earls Motor Court - A typical classic style Route 66 Motor Court, reminiscent of the type built all along the Mother road, in its hay-day

The Neon tubes on the Hotel end wall all seem intact & probably working. The Neon text typical of a Mother Road motel of the 50s/60s, reads:
T.V., Tubs, Showers, & Refrigeration. Also the obligatory Neon Arrow pointing to the office, & No - Vacancy.

Many closed & were bulldozed, but Earl's slice of Americana has survived due to the resurgence of Historic Route 66, & perhaps the Eagles.

Located (Westbound Route 66) On a corner in Winslow, Arizona, USA.

The Marble Motel, shown in the postcard below from 1958 was built in the 1940s and remodeled in 1952. Nowadays it is the Earl's Motor Court.
