I spent the day at the fabulous Donner Summit Historical Society Museum in Soda Springs. Once again, Norm Sayler, curator of the museum, shared some of his knowledge and rare photographs.
This photo shows Truckee, California in September of 1919. We see a couple of cars on the left next to a gas station, with Red Crown gas advertised. What caught our eye, however, is the large Lincoln Highway "L" that is standing next to the gas station. There appear to be either arrows or wording at the top and bottom of the sign, but we can't make out what it says.
