Vintage Library of Congress Photos of Classic Roadside Americana in Ohio
Last week the Library of Congress published well over 10,000 vintage photographs of classically American roadsigns and storefronts. Photographer John Margolies captured the pictures while on long, cross-country journeys along U.S. highways.
Margolies took his 35 mm camera to Ohio between 1979 and 1990, where he photographed gas stations, storefronts, billboard, hotels and much more. Since the photos are public domain, Scene selected a few of our favorite, outlandish attractions.
