Artist's Description

Built in 1939, the Blue Swallow is located in Tucumcari, New Mexico. It is a 12-unit L-shaped motel listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
I have always been fascinated with historic Rt. 66 images and finally got to see and photograph this beautiful little motel on a recent trip through the southwest. It reminds me of many such structures I saw growing up in the south in the 1950s and 60s. The Blue Swallow was named by Smithsonian Magazine as “the last, best and friendliest of the old-time motels”
Best viewed large.
