The Lincoln Highway preceded Route 66 by a dozen years, runs a third longer than the famed highway, and crosses the country from Atlantic to Pacific. Traversing fourteen states from Times Square in New York to Lincoln Park in San Francisco, this large-format book follows the highway in both space and time to diners, gas stations, ice cream stands, tourist cabins, historic landmarks, and roadside attractions. Excerpts from memoirs and old postcards give a feel for what early motoring was really like--the good, the bad, and the muddy.
