Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Shorpy Does Road Heritage-- Part 1
One of the most interesting websites out there is Shorpy, which takes old, high resolution photographs all the way back to the Civil War and features several a day. It is a regular stop for me, especially in regards to some great shots of the homefront during World War II. If old city photos are your thing, this be the place. And then you can magnify the pictures for unbelievable detail. //// And definitely, read the comments wheneever you have the time as they have some avid and knowledgeable folk following the site. //// On the 21st and 22nd of this month, Shorpy had two photos of interest to all you Road Folk/Roadies. One involved highway signs and the other stop signs. //// Highway Signage and Stop Signs Next. --RoadDog
