In 2016, Route 66 celebrated its 90th anniversary. Among all the cities that it ran through from Illinois to California, St. Louis was the largest. The Route 66 alignment through St Louis extended over 18 miles.

Susan followed this route through St. Louis with one of her toy cameras, a Holga Digital, to see what it looks like now. She’ll be showing you what she found.

Susan Hacker Stang is an American photographer, author, and educator. She retired in 2015 after forty-one years as professor of communications at Webster University in St. Louis. Her work has been collected by more than 25 major museums and libraries around the world and appears in numerous books and magazines.
