In 2016, Route 66 celebrated its 90th anniversary. Among all the cities that it ran through from Illinois to California, St. Louis was the largest. The Route 66 alignment through St Louis extended over 18 miles.
Susan followed this route through St. Louis with one of her toy cameras, a Holga Digital, to see what it looks like now. She’ll be showing you what she found.
