The Lincoln Highway

In many places, the old highway serves as a frontage road for the new. Note roads on both sides of the present highway.
This section is south of present-day U.S. 50 by Hamilton, east of Ely, NV; it probably looks much the same as it did back in 1913.
Carroll Station, between Austin and Eastgate, probably in the 1950's or very early 1960's.
