This book by John A. Jakle and Keith A. Sculle, two leading experts on the nation's roadside landscape, examines the crucial role that small- to mid-sized city hotels played in American life during the early decades of the twentieth century, a time when the automobile was fast becoming the primary mode of transportation. Before the advent of the interstate system, such hotels served as commercial and social anchors of developing towns across the country. Americas Main Street Hotels provides a thorough survey of the impact these hotels had on their communities and cultures.
