I live in Lancaster SC.
I'd love to know what area was assigned Route 1.
Perhaps I will research it.....probably not.
Reckless disregard for the law was around even in 1925 !
Mr. Hough never signed his registration !
The WPA produced a State Guide for each state during the Depression, South Carolina included. I bought the Michigan edition and it is absolutely packed full with information on old towns, old parks and, germane to your interest, old roads. If you were to obtain the SC edition, no doubt you would be able to easily figure out what area Route 1 was.
Reckless disregard for the law continued on into 1930. My great uncle didn't sign the registration paper for his 1927 Essex.
