Our Road Trip Issue: Old Illinois Highway Maps and Cost of Gas
The Illinois State Library has created a digital collection of 64 state highway maps dating from 1917 through 2008. You can access the collection at the Illinois Digital Archives site at <http://www.idaillinois.org/cdm4/browse.php?CISOROOT=%2Fisl9>. An article describing how the project was done can be found in the spring 2011 issue of the Bulletin of the Illinois Geographical Society (V. 52, No. 1).
