100 Years of the Lincoln Highway

Really interesting video on the Centennial of the Lincoln Highway and talks about the Tin Can Tourists around the 27 minute mark. We have documentation that the name of the club came from the Tin Lizzies they were driving but from an outsiders view, the Tin Cans they were eating from would be an obvious connection.

Before the Interstate Highway System, before famed Route 66, before highways were even numbered, there was one road that started it all, one road that changed America forever: The Lincoln Highway. “100 Years on the Lincoln Highway” is the story of the first coast to coast automobile road in the United States and its impact on Wyoming.

The hardest people to convince were Jessica’s parents, who grew up in an impoverished Latino neighborhood in the Bronx and worked hard so their daughter could have a better life.
