This is a sharp contrast to today's GPS and navigational systems. Imagine finding your way from Salt Lake City to Yellowstone Park in 1922.
Thank you Richard E!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I have one from 1922 also. A friend of mine (yes I have a friend) and I were looking at it and he commented about it being a paper GPS and that nothing is new in todays world just presented differently. Back then you looked up your road of travel complete with eateries and repair station in a book and now you have an electronic voice telling you which way to go and where to stop.
Great book, one of my favorite routes from Ashton to Island Park.
At least that one has a map in it. Look at the Automobile Blue Book and see how they did it before there were hiway signs. Dan
Kevin, My favorite route too. That was the way to West Yellowstone when I was a kid. We went through Warm River and past the Mesa Falls's. We still go that Scenic Highway in the old cars as there is not much traffic on it as there is the newer highway.
Dan, Those "Blue Books" were a great collection of maps and photos. I had one but traded it off because it pertained to the North East part of the country rather than the West.
Rich: You are right about the Blue Books. The western books are the hard ones to find. I pick them up when ever I find them. I have a complete set for 1915. One book does from the Miss River west. There are 3 other books for the East. Dan
