John Margolies: Roadside America brings together approximately 400 color photographs of Main Street signs, storefronts, movie theaters and drive-ins, gas stations, short-order restaurants, motels, roadside attractions, miniature golf courses, coastal resorts, giant figures, and statuary. In an age when online shopping and mega-malls have reconfigured American consumerism, stripping away idiosyncrasy in favor of a bland homogeneity, Margolies’s 30-year survey reminds us of a more innocent, unpredictable, and colorful past.
