New Broadway Of America Book

Recommended Posts

Roberta Serface recently published a book on the Broadway of America, entitled

Broadway of America: The Forgotten Highway.

 

http://www.thebroadwayofamerica.com/home

 

Serface, a former Lordsburg, New Mexico resident inherited the photographs of

Col. Willard E. Holt, a Lordsburg booster. During the 1920s and 1930s, Holt, as a leader

of the Lordsburg Chamber of Commerce, promoted the town vigorously.

 

This included boosting highways that came through Lordsburg, including the

Borderland and Old Spanish Trail, but with the most energy, the Broadway of

America.

 

Holt's photographs, many depicting the 1928 Broadway of America motorcade to

Memphis, are priceless.

Excellent news! Roberta and I have been conversing for a couple of years here and there about my project and her project. She made me promise to keep it quiet, so I'm glad to see she has finally announced it is finished getting published! I can vouch for the fact that this project will contain many photos never before seen by the general roadie public. i too am reserving a copy today.

Just a quick note to alert anyone interested that the new BOA book is now out. I purchased mine today. Quite interesting, with loads of great pictures, many that have never before been published.
