Larry F. Posted September 28, 2007 Report Share Posted September 28, 2007 The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer, at Grand Island, Nebraska, is probably well-known to many who will read this. If you haven't been there, it's well worth a stop some time when you're traveling either the Lincoln Highway or that other wider, less-interesting highway known as Interstate 80! From the Museum's website: "...David H. Traill...the traveling executive sectary for the Iowa-Nebraska Lincoln Highway Association. This album appears to have been part of a photographic survey conducted by Traill of directional signs along the Lincoln Highway in Nebraska in the summer of 1939." These are some truly historic pictures of billboards serving as directional and promotional signs for the Lincoln Highway. Worth looking at http://www.stuhrmuseum.org/westerntrails/traill.htm The Stuhr has other info about the Lincoln Highway, too, at http://www.stuhrmuseum.org/westerntrails/lincoln_hwy.htm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
