Photo of the Week: Road Trip

With a new school year rapidly approaching, there are just a few days left this summer for that all-American vacation, the road trip.

Here are four photographs from the Carter's permanent collection, all taken from the road.

I think I've been through Tahoka about a thousand times and have never seen the Cake Palace. Interesting - and nice post!

I googled the Cake Palace and it's apparently still in business. You should check it out!

Do you have any information on the dye destruction process. This is an interesting print!
