Photographer's Note

Having left Chicago one of our early stops on our three week journey along Route 66 was at the Polk-a-Dot Drive In at Braidwood, Illionis. The weather was cold and gloomy and the very friendly staff not only let us in before the official opening time but also gave us coffee. This typical 1950s style diner had a Wurlitzer amongst other memorabilia.

The Wurlitzer is a jukebox although the name refers to the Rudolf Wurlitzer Company that produced a range of musical instruments as well as jukeboxes.
