Old Route 66 - One of the original U.S. Highways, Route 66 was established on November 11, 1926. The highway, which became one of the most famous roads in America, originally ran from Chicago, Illinois, through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona before ending at Los Angeles, California, covering 2,448 miles.
Route 66 was a very desolate road that many took to California like the Joads. Hoping that new places would strike new dreams. Highway 66 is the main migrant road stretching from the Mississippi to Bakersfield, California. It is a road of flight for refugees from the dust and shrinking land.
