Route 66 traffic in Saint Louis, Missouri, 1951

This view of  Vandeventer at Tower Grove, taken in Saint Louis at 7:50 am on Nov. 28, 1951, shows us an interesting view of foggy Route 66 morning rush hour traffic, courtesy of Joe Sonderman. The clean Buick fastback stands out in the scene that looks like it it may have been in a gritty part of the city. Tell us anything you can about the vehicles, the location and the familiar looking transit buses seen here.

To learn and see much more about this famed American highway, take a moment to check out Sonderman’s books which are filled with historic photos of this storied and legendary road.
