As we have been telling you, the original route 66 made its way through Maplewood from 1926 through 1933.
While you can still see some of the businesses that are still in operation, visit www.cityofmaplewood.com/route66
for that information, we thought it would be fun to look at some of the entertainment that was available around that time, give or take a few years.
You can also checkout the book, "Route 66 St. Louis: From the Bridges to the Diamonds" ($29.95) by Norma Maret Bolin available at www.route66stlouis.com . (Shipping and tax additional) It is also available at the Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest in Maplewood. Thanks to Ms. Bolin for providing the photo of Cousin Hugo's.
