Sign Next To Angel's Barber Shop

Angel Delgadillo is known as The Angel of Route 66. He was born in Seligman, AZ, and watched as Route 66, and towns along it, died when the interstate highway system replaced the mother road. Angel decided to be a force in restoring and preserving Route 66, and is actively involved as a spokesman who works to make sure the memories of the road will not disappear.


I was fortunate enough to meet him while in Seligman earlier this month - he's a delightful man. He often rides his bicycle along the city streets. His barber shop is still open, and the walls are a riot of cards, notes, and photos from other aficionados of Route 66.
