Another sweet old motel. Still in business on Central near Rio Grande.

It's for "non smokers," even back then. I think there is a trend for cigarette-related cultural stuff. Hm, smoke-o-trivia, nicotene-o-bilia? Keep shooting, Dee, it is super.

Our family stayed at this hotel when we moved cross-country from CA to MO back in 1964.  I have carried an extremely vivid memory ever since then of standing in the bathroom, looking out at the desert in the night time, hearing a train whistle, and thinking this will be my home one day.  And, guess what?  Less than 8 years later I left everything to come here without knowing a single person, and $34 in my pocket. Best decision of my life.  Thanks, Dee, for giving me a reason to remember.

Thank you Zuzu. There is always something interesting in ABQ!

Thanks Grumpy for that great memory. ABQ seems somehow lost in time in spots. It doesn't surprise me that you felt your future back then. I had a similar tug in 1976 when I visited here and stopped to eat in a tiny adobe cafe in Old Town. Dee
