Pre-Interstate System 1955
I came across this Pre-Interstate map and wanted to share it. While on the Coast to Coast Road Trip I drove across the first section of the Eisenhower Interstate System. This really made me think how different it was driving in the fifties and sixties. This was a time when the roadside motel like Howard Johnson was a place to stop for the evening and hitting a drive-in might be on the nights agenda. I know my generation (Gen X) takes the interstates for granted, driving here or there in a moments notice. Though I love to hear the stories from my Mom how they would drive Route 20 from Cleveland to Boston, something that would be unheard of today.
