A fun--albeit slender--coffee table book. Margolies is a photographer with a passion for roadside attractions. Not all photos in the book are his, as his passion includes their history as well, so there are vintage photos and postcards from attractions past. This is apparently his second book on this topic, and I note from his jacket flap bio that he's done a book devoted specifically to miniature golf, which I'd love to get my hands on. I liked this book, but I would have liked it more if there ...more

A fun read... maybe just as much a history book as a travel book.

Beautiful time capsule of the golden age of roadside attractions. It breaks my heart how few of these are still out there though...

I found this book extremely fascinating! It is so interesting to me what people build and what people stop to see on their travels!!! I want to see some of the things in this book!
