Historical Thingness

I found a pretty great photo of my blog’s namesake, the infamous desert highway mystery attraction/tourist trap known as “The Thing.”

The original “The Thing,” Route 66, Barstow, California

This photo dates from the 1950s, when The Thing was in its original Mojave Desert home on Route 66 near Barstow, California. It moved to its present location on Interstate 10 near Willcox, Arizona, in 1965.

Naturally … how could I resist? … I added this photo to my rotating collection of header images (go to the top of the blog and click “refresh” to see them all).

Who loves ya, baby? Paul’s Thing, that’s who!
