Historic BoomTown, Iowa

Greetings Fellow Travelers,

As far as I have traveled along the open road, I always find my way back to my hamlet in BoomTown, Iowa. I have shared these photos once before, but as my daughter and webmistress has recommended, I wanted to take the opportunity to make them a bit easier to find.

Here is a link to some photos of my BoomTown, Iowa Coal Town, taken by Jeff Terranova on one of his visits.  The work you see done on the automobiles and buildings has been a process over many years, completed mostly by myself, with some help from my vagabond son.


I hope that you enjoy this peak into my historic hamlet and this look at my own artwork featured through the lens of Mr. Terranova’s camera. If you ever find yourself to the north of Boone in Central Iowa, stop by and share your own stories along the open road.

From the Open Road, 

Lincoln Highway Johnny
