Erick, Oklahoma<br>Intersection of Route 66 & Main Street.: Erick, Oklahoma!, United States of America
: Buildings.
Where Main Street crosses 66 the buildings on all four corners have doors that face diagonally toward the intersection. This is the only place along Route 66 where this design occurs. People wonder why some buildings were constructed with doors at a diagonal on the corner, it was considered an inviting and friendly design - welcoming the shopper to the store, hotel or bank.

I own a 1966 Corvette that was sold at Lalicker Chevrolet. I think the building has been demolished.

Yeah... In 1997, when this pic was taken, that whole intersection consisted of abandoned buildings, if memory serves me. Very sad.

Hopefully, there's something going/gone up in it's place?
