I was able to go to a farm auction this weekend to get out of the house and have an excuse to enjoy the beautiful weather. The people who owned the farm sold their land and were moving. It was a small sale with some household things along with the farm items. I found few things of interest, but I did latch onto these great vintage highway maps. I really like the vintage artwork on them. The maps in the collection dated from 1946 through the early 2000's. I personally have no interest in the ones that are newer than 1990, but I really enjoy these older ones. Many of them came from various gas stations / oil companies. It's really interesting to see how the highways have changed over the years. I remember when the north/south highway just outside of town was two lane when I was growing up in the 1980s and they were in the process of transforming it into a 4 lane highway. It is now being transformed again, preparing it to become an interstate highway, the major route to Kansas City from this area.
