Drive U.S. 60 and 66

Here’s a cool combo map and guide to Highways 60 and 66. The Highway Travel Service, based in Waterloo, Iowa, produced dozens of maps in the 1930s and 40s. This map from 1939, showed travelers the way from Virginia to California. One of the best parts of this guide are the nifty ads inside. Cafes, motels and scenic sights crowd the road map cartography.

The maps are simple. A bold blue line defines the main route. Handwritten labels add charm to this vintage map.
