Looking back

One of my duties this week at RedFork Main Street involves looking up historic photographs of our project area. If you’re interested in Route 66, southwest Tulsa, old cars, or historic buildings, you might want to check out ODOT’s great collection of Route 66 photographs — which includes several of downtown Red Fork — or the Beryl Ford Collection of Tulsa photographs through the years. Some of the photos are really amazing.

Next week, I’m hoping to grab a camera and some printouts of the old images and put together a then-and-now slideshow to post on our Web site.

I still can’t believe they’re paying me for this. Life is good….
