Lincoln Highway

Lincoln Highway Stone Marker, originally uploaded by William 74.

We return to rural Illinois for today's TtV Tuesday, and one of the original markers for the Lincoln Highway. There are four of them still standing along a one-mile stretch of the road, just outside the town of Franklin Grove. This one's probably my favorite one, because it has some interesting stuff in the background. Of the other three, one has a big chip missing out of it, and is in a bit of scrub ground between two alignments, and the other two front cornfields that look all right when there's something growing but not so much when the fields are bare. I've shot them all, anyway.
