CALIFORNIA ROAD DEVELOPMENT

SHEL SHOTS --------- MUSEUM NOTES BY SHEL WEISBACH
Every so often I come across a short historical reference that really
catches my eye and just beautifully and succinctly summarizes an event.

This morning I was seeking more info on J. B. Woodson and W. Lewis
Clark, highway engineers of the Ridge Route, when I came across a book
that of and by itself said it all . . .

Ben Blow’s California Highways: A Descriptive Record of Road
Development
by the State and by Such Counties as Have Paved Highways . . .
published
in 1920.
As the famous ad line goes "You've come a long way"
Happy Holidays,
Shel
