US90 West in Texas
The first photo is from 7/21/1978. This is a mile sign off TX-97
pointing to Los Angeles, Texas. The first photo was from a trip from Corpus
Christi to southern California. The rest was from a trip from Corpus Christi to Big
Bend. The car being used here in this first photo is a 1970s BMW and it was overheating badly
all the way to El Paso. This was a 600 mile trip that went through no towns with more than 20,000 people in them. It had a cracked cylinder head at the end. We did
35 MPH in an automatic in second gear. US90 used to be Texas Highway 3. By the way a big tropical storm hit Corpus Christi when we were on this disaster of a trip.
The rest were all taken on 7/21/1979 of TX-97 and of US90 West in West
Texas. It was with a different car.
This sign post is for Fowerlton, Texas and Los Angeles, Texas.
These three are west of Del Rio.
This is the Amistad bridge and this is looking into Mexico.
These two are of Dryden, Texas. I think this store is gone and this town
had a population of only 13 by 1988. That was only nine years after these
photos were taken.
