The Oklahoma Department of Transportation has a fascinating online gallery of photographs of Red Fork during the heyday of Route 66. Click here to see how Red Fork looked in 1949. The gallery also includes several pages of images of Route 66 from other parts of Oklahoma.
Do you remember visiting any of these businesses when they were open? We’d love to hear your memories. If you have stories to share about Red Fork or Route 66 in Southwest Tulsa, please snail-mail them to Red Fork Main Street News, c/o RedFork Main Street, 3708 Southwest Blvd., Tulsa, OK, 74107, or e-mail them to epriddy (at) redforkmainstreet (dot) org. If you know someone who does not have computer access but might have stories to share, please print out this post and pass it along to him or her.
