Nostalgia for Colorado motels

James Lileks, blogger and master of ironic nostalgia, offers this website of old motel postcards.

I think that I have stayed in at least two of the Colorado offerings, ate breakfast at this cafe, and this one looks familiar.

But I missed the Stepford wives of Lordsburg, New Mexico.

Of course, M. and I were staying in them in the 1980s and early 1990s, which says something about our travel budget then.
