Louisiana to Minnesota

Travel U.S. 71 from New Orleans to the Canadian border. This highway stretches for 1,723 miles. The All-American System provided these handy travel guides to motorists. Each guide had a map, accomodations and services, and highlighted key radio stations along the way. Want to catch the latest news and weather conditions in Carthage, Mo.? Well, tune your radio to AM 1490 KDMO. This guide, probably from the late 1950s, is illustrated with a rather generic illustration that was also used on the other highway guides produced by All-American. I do like the crude representation of a drive-in movie in the distance.
