Johnny_Mango's Sunday Wallpaper: Downtown View from Barelas

BARELAS--Route 66 ran right through Barelas prior to 1937. This view from south 4th Street still has a few remnants from earlier times, but nothing that goes back that far. The appliance store has been around for over 40 years. But probably the most interesting feature is the ghost of the "Royal Fork Buffet" sign that is visible on the right hand side of the street.

For years I had seen the points at the top and the word 'royal' always came to mind...sort of a crown in the sky. It wasn't until a few years ago that I also clicked to the 'fork' aspect of those points.To use as wallpaper, click on the image to enlarge, then right-click and select "desktop background."
