Downtowner Motor Inn, “Dine With Us,” 1969
Back in 1969 we moved from Dallas to Costa Mesa, CA and drove all the way. This is one of my Dad’s old fuzzy slides, and I think we must have stayed at this motel on the way. Maybe El Paso or somewhere in New Mexico… I’m not sure. I need to ask my Dad. I see the Magnolia Oil (Mobil Oil) flying red horse on top of the building to the right of the motel sign.
