Super-Highway System

In September 1960 a south London family received this postcard of Los Angeles Harbor Freeway at night.

Mar003

The Freeway was described on the reverse of the card as:

…a vital segment of the fabulous Super-Highway System, connecting all parts of the vast Los Angeles Basin. One of the world’s most heavily traveled highways.

The message on the card read:

How about trying your hand on roads like these? This is a terrific city, very prosperous. Temperature has been 90 degrees today. Had a fine week-end in N. York with J.T. Jr. Sent your love to Mr Midgley and got a picture of him. Went to Chicago for two days to see Bob Bacon. Please excuse scribble.
