Picture Yourself

The Lincoln Highway is the first coast-to-coast road built in the US. In most of Pennsylvania it's known as Route 30. On our anniversary trip back home, we took the self guided tour through Bedford County Pa. The highway (200 years old this year) has many historic stops along the way.

The Picture Yourself exhibit at the Lincoln Motor Court was our favorite. Leave it to Bob to figure out a way to get us both in the photo. It took a few tries for him to make it to the spot before the shutter went off. 


The Polaroid frame strip across the top is digital and was a perfect element for me to add pictures from our other stops:

  Bison Corral Farm mural


1806 Old Log Church which still has its original 
straight-backed wooden pews and wine glass pulpit.

Giant statue of the Pied Piper blowing his horn.  Since 1950 he guarded 
the entrance to Storyland, a former children's park. 

1925 Giant Coffee Pot, rescued and moved to the Bedford County Fairgrounds.
 
Art deco-style Dunkie's Gulf Service Station opened in 1933.
 
And there's plenty more to see along this scenic highway!
