Yes the clock was working. Here are more.

1. Rock Creek Bridge. It carries traffic on an older alignment of 66. But to my surprise, it was closed because it failed an inspection. So I did not get to drive across it this time. If you look closely, the bridge frames the Tee Pee Drive In. Sapulpa, OK

2-3. What's left of the Tee Pee Drive In. It was fenced off and I couldn't go on the property. Sapulpa

4.Rock Cafe. It was built in the late 1930s with stones unearthed during the paving of 66. It burned about 5 years ago, but fortunately rebuilt. This is where people asked me if I was a pro photog when I had the Pentax 645 on the tripod. Stroud, OK

5. Skyliner motel. When I stayed there in 2004 the M-O-T-E-L letters were neon, but replaced with plastic ones that don't look as good. Stroud

6. The Round Barn built in 1898. Arcadia, OK

7-9. Here are a few B&W and "Kodachrome" look.
