Travel Tuesday: Old-time tourist trap in Apache Junction, Arizona, 1940
This group of figures made of papier mache stood outside a roadside zoo to attract passing tourists at Apache Junction, Arizona, in 1940. They represented the three stages in the development of the state--"the prehistoric man, the Indian, and the prospector." These figures have long since disappeared. That's not a bad thing.
