Vintage Roadside swings by the Country Ham Motel

We love vintage motel and motor court postcards and the one below is way up there on our all-time favorite list. This one can also be safely filed under "They don't make 'em like they used to".

Behold the one-of-a-kind Country Ham Motel - once located in Bowling Green Kentucky. You might be wondering what those objects are hanging in the large display window. Why, none other than the "Largest Country Ham Display in the U.S.A."

We'll probably never have the opportunity to visit a motel using cured meat as a draw (darn those pesky regulations!) but we know the Country Ham would have stopped up in our tracks.

It's places like the Country Ham Motel, with their imagination and spirit, that keep us creeping along the old highways and back roads.
