News From Along Route 66, July 2016: Anyone Have Pictures of John's Modern Cabins?

**  Someone in the Route 66 Digest e-mail group wants to know if someone has pictures of what John's Modern Cabins looked like when it was a business.  I sure would like to see them.  I'm well aware of what it looks like since I've been seeing it all these years.

JULY 8--  The Carlyle Motel in Oklahoma City is to become a car lot.  Located at 3900 NW 39th Street.  Built 1941.  In 2013, the new owners replaced the classic sign.

JULY 9--  The Pony Bridge was added to the Endangered Places list in Oklahoma.  It is near Bridgeport.  In 2016 it was listed on Oklahoma's Most Endangered Historic Places.

It is 3,900 feet long and consists of 38 "pony" trusses.  It appeared in the 1939 "Grapes of Wrath" movie.

That is some bridge.
