U Drop Inn Cafe - Route 66

U Drop Inn Cafe - Route 66 - This is the famous U Drop Inn Cafe and Conoco Tower Station which use to be three building with the service station and the U Drop Inn and a shop which ended up being for overflow in the restaurant back in the day on the old route 66. We captured this from both angles and this is from the side of the U Drop Inn Cafe with a vintage tow truck in view on the side of the building. The Tower Station was the first commercial business located on the newly designated Route 66 in Shamrock. Today this building has been taken over by the city of Shamrock Texas. They include the chamber of commerce for the city of Shamrock and a visitor center and cafe U Drop Inn museum. This art deco style was inspired by John Nunn and created by architect Joseph Berry and built in 1936. There are two towers on the top with one with a metal tulip spelling out CONOCO Tower and other say CAFE. This building is on the Register of Historic Places. The route 66 started in 1926 in Chicago, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas,New mexico, Arizona to California till 1985. We stuck around till dark so we could photographic unique retro building after dark with all the neon lights all lit up. Photo © copyright by Bee Creek Photography - Tod Grubbs / Cynthia Hestand.

Canvas wrap

Canvas wraps are printed on white archival poly-cotton blend matte canvas. The canvas is wrapped on a 1.5" stretcher framed and finished with a durable black backing. The gallery wrap arrives at your doorstep ready to hang. After an order is submitted, the canvas usually arrives within 5-6 business days. While canvas wraps are more expensive, there is no need for matting and framing. After a fine art print is matted and framed, the cost is often equivalent or even slightly more than a canvas wrap.
