    Our local club had a contest this past year where you needed to find all 8 murals and 22 painted gas pumps along Rt. 30, The Lincoln Highway in southern PA.

    I can't get all the pictures posted so I'll just give you the link.

    It's broken down by county and then there are links to the murals and pumps.

    I got to watch the painter as he finished the last mural in Abbottstown Pa. He thought I was crazy out finding the mural and taking pictures.

    It was really a neat excuse to travel the old road.

    Not really a mural, more of a sign, but still worthy, I say!
