Pontiac, Illinois

Quick stop in Pontiac to look at billboards and find a snack. I skipped the overpriced Route 66 Hall of Fame museum, opting instead to visit the gift shop and buy a map and some postcards to show my support.

I liked the painting honoring legacy storefronts no longer in business, complete with their owners. Less fond of Route 66 oversaturation and commercialization, and I didn’t have the long or fish-eye lens to properly capture huge murals.
