A vanishing bit of Americana is disappearing from Tucson and Dianne Stevens of Airstream Life was able to record a bit of it before it was lost forever.
The Magic Carpet Golf, on East Speedway Boulevard will soon be razed to make way for a parking lot. The entire place was handmade with concrete sculptures, colored lights, and exotic scenes from popular culture.
There is talk of moving the sculptures to another location for preservation, but I donâ€™t see how it will be possible. They are delicate and crumbling, made on-site mostly from wire and concrete, and in many cases firmly anchored to the ground. Moving that T-Rex would be an operation akin to removing a real 65-million year-old dino fossil.
