Welcome Stranger - Montana Highway Patrol (1920s?)


We enjoyed this find out of the 1920s ... although we are not certain of an exact date.  Surely it is from the time when cars were first using the highways and travel between states was beginning.  Enlargements below, hopefully you can read it ...



This item doesn't really fit into any of the categories of interest stated in John's Profile, but when you're looking for vintage items to add to a collection you're going to come across some interesting items like this that do not fit exactly. Of course, these things raise questions. Did all states publish something like this and where were these things distributed?

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  1. I think it's funny to realize that Montana now doesn't have an upper speed limit on the highway. Or at least that's what I remember from when I lived in Colorado. :-)
