Custer Battlefield Hiway (1920s?)

Undated travel decal from the Emergence of Advertising collection.
scoured from Google:

“The CBH route originated in Des Moines, passed through Ames to the west, then north and west through Sioux City, and across into Montana, ending at the Glacier National Park in western Montana. “

Image of an astounding map of the route, grabbed from an ebay auction. Feel free to buy it for me! Check out Zazzle.com’s ebay store for tons of incredible images. (uncompensated gushing endorsement- but I would graciously accept this map!) Tell them Bulldog Vintage sent ya.

I would love to convice the family to travel this route on our next vacation. Too bad it’s not the Thirties or I would hitchhike it. I’d love to make a Twenties country music song about this route, an imagined pre-cursor to “Route 66”. Anyone play fiddle and or washboard out there? I’ll sing.

  1. You can actually download a pretty high resolution copy of this map and just print it yourself. I’m sure that’s where the ebay seller got it. It’s at the Library of Congress website:

    Just click on the map, then there is a download link at the bottom of the new page.

  2. well, there are so many tourist attractions that you find on asia and europe. i would really love to travel a lot”
