It had to begin somewhere.
Interesting display. I've never seen an ice cart at a railway station.
Railroads followed the wagon route west.

A pretty tough life.
I think I can afford one of these.
A malt shop and one pump gas station.
The Studebaker I can afford. Notice the cooler in the window, very pre-air conditioning..
Another look at the gas station.
During WWII Kingman was a gunnery training base. From the pictures there were quite a few planes on hand.
A mural depicts life on Route 66.
Scenes depicting old Kingman, the Beale Hotel.
The barber shop.
