Presentation by Alan Elze
Long before there was a Route 66, there was a true transcontinental road that crossed America from Times Square to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. Nearly 3,400 miles through nearly 700 towns, many of which seem to still exist in the mid- 20th century. A road that not many are acquainted with, but is sure to bring memories of a time gone by.
