van-ish: To pass completely from existence
Amer-i-can-a: materials concerning or characteristic of America, its civilization, or its culture
Every day it seems as though another landmark (historic or not) is torn down to make way for a parking garage or some other creation. Things such as roadside diners and drive-in movies fall into disrepair. America keeps changing for better or worse and bits and pieces of the past fade away into oblivion.
I started this blog with the intention of providing a place where folks can sit back and sift through nostalgic Americana. Pictures, videos, books, and other items that might otherwise be forgotten will have a home here. I scour the public domain and take care to only use items with no known copyright restrictions.
So sit back, enjoy, and feel free to send ideas or items that I can post here.
