This ornament honors Historic Route 66 and Cyrus Avery, the businessman and native Tulsan who was instrumental in its creation.
The ornament shows what one would see traveling West on Historic Route 66
(11th St.). The buildings to the North depict two famous aspects of Tulsa, its
renowned Art Deco Architecture, as seen in the historic Warehouse Market(1929),
a unique example of Depression Era style Deco and Tulsa's claim as
Oil Capitol of the
World shown in the Sun Oil Corporation building (1954), the Philtower (1927), and the Cosden
(Mid-Continent) building (built, 1916; remodeled, 1984).
The front piece shows a classic 1959 Corvette convertible - same make and
model used in the TV series
