The Huebinger’s Map & Guide Book, of the Trans-Continental Route
Omaha – Denver, produced by Iowa Publishing Co. of Des Moines IA, for the 1911 opening of the road is a real treasure of pics, advertising [used by “Huebinger’s” to support the printing, distribution & sales of the map & guide & the “Commercial Clubs” precursor to “Chambers of Commerce”] to ‘promote’ the establishment of the route . . with white-background-signage with O L D in black letters painted on telephone poles, etc. to designate the route.
The MAPS & PIC’s contained in the publication, use interesting landmark designations
