Stopping for directions in Arizona

U.S. Highway 80 cuts a straight line through this little town southwest of Phoenix. In this photo, from the mid-1950s, Gila Bend, Ariz. had all the services a traveler needed. Several gas stations, including Richfield can be seen. The older Stout’s Hotel, on the left, does its best to attract business. It shares a building with a soda fountain. I love the moment of conversation between service station attendant and an out-of-state motorist. Maybe he was getting directions?
