‘Better Highways for Better Living’

Posted by on December 7th, 2010 at 1:39 pm

I recently came across this old road map from the mid 1960s published by the Washington State Highway Commission. I’ve been debating with myself whether or not I feel this is classic highway propaganda, or if it’s just a reflection of the times (or both). What do you think?
