Subject: Fw: Early navigation directional assistance from the Post Office
This is an interesting bit of history. Perhaps you did not know of it either. Early navigation directional assistance – who knew! These Huge Arrows Can Be Found All Across America. And This Is Where They All Lead To. ~Alice
I can only assume that before the Internet and GPS, taking a cross country road trip was just like a real life Oregon Trail and everyone died of dysentery in Oklahoma. But as it turns out there was a time when all you had to do was follow the giant arrows. Like some sort of real life Mario Kart.
All over the country, 70-foot concrete arrows can be found in remote locations. Follow them, and they’ll point you out of the desert.
