Lincoln Highway

There is no romance associated with the Lincoln Highway like there is for Route 66. No television shows. No signposts advertising backwater communities. But the Lincoln Highway was the first successful, all-weather, coast-to-coast, automobile highway. Parts of the highway were paved in bricks and this photo is part of the original highway in central Nebraska. Other than the now, unusual brick paving, this stretch of highway is mainly ignored. The road has taken on the decided common sounding name of Highway 30, but even then, the traffic has moved slightly south to a newer cement road. When I walk, I walk through history.
