Help requested in re-creating Riviera Roadhouse

Willem Bor of the Netherlands plans to build a miniature of the historic Riviera Roadhouse, which was destroyed by fire in June 2010.

Bor is planning on building the former Gardner, Ill., tavern to 1/50th scale. Here are samples of his work:

Bor hopes to donate this future work to the Illinois Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac.

However, he is having trouble tracking down good images of the Riviera. If you have quality images or other information about that roadhouse, you can e-mail him at bordesign(at)planet(dot)nl .
