Modes of modern travel
The American Southwest is dotted with motels that didn’t make it. Travel patterns changed, towns not on the Interstate highway system got smaller, air travel became more affordable, people were in too much of a hurry to even consider an overnight stay in a place like Encino, New Mexico.
And, so, here, the Photography Gods blessed me with an illustration of how all those things impacted the Encino Motel, which could not be saved by new management and/or low rates.
