Bankhead Highway / Bankhead Highway military motor convoy itinerary

Well, here are some things I've found to now:

Detour through Helena due to flooding of the Mississippi between Memphis and Little Rock.      Source: FHWA
Note: This would have followed the Mississippi River Scenic Highway auto trail (Old US 61) to Dundee, TN, then across the ferry to Helena. The 1925 Rand McNally auto trail map shows the road curving north then south to the ferry, which was still a bit north of Dundee. The logical road for this would be Dundee Road, both because if its name and its shape. The crossing was likely at a place called Trotter Landing.

San Diego Union:
Quote
Headed by the car occupied by Colonel Fletcher, Major Franklin and J. A. Rountree, secretary of the Bankhead Highway Commission and field director of the convoy, the procession wound slowly down into the city.
At Fourth and Walnut*, the convoy was met by motorized detachments representing the navy activities here, the army stations of Fort Rosecrans and Rockwell Field, and two naval bands . . . . The convoy went into camp in the park, north of the exposition buildings, and as the men turned out for "Assembly," Colonel Fletcher, introduced by the commanding officer, made what one dusty truck driver termed "the best speech of the whole trip."
Colonel Fletcher's speech was not oratory, nor intended as such. Simply and directly, he told the officers and men of San Diego's welcoming spirit and invited them to take part in the celebration planned in their honor. Applause such as only a crowd of army men can give greeted him as he told the men of the chicken dinner to which the American Legion last night invited them, of today's "launch ride" about the bay in a navy destroyer, of the free bathing privileges of the Service plunge and the auto ride about the city, planned for the enlisted men.

* There’s a weird jog on 4th right at Walnut. I always wondered why it was there if 4th was the main road into downtown.

National Park to Park Highway / A.G. Lucier photos
« on: February 08, 2010, 04:43:10 PM »
I just received a set of the A.G. Lucier photos taken in 1926 of Shoshone Dam and the Cody Road (Ebay purchase). They're small, but clear and should scan well. The set is still in the original envelope which I believe dates between 1933 and 1935 as it shows the NRA eagle logo. Many images show the Cody Road into Yellowstone which was part of the National Park-to-Park Highway.
Until I get them on the site, you can see a few of them on the Cody Road website (Pictures 1, 2, and 5 are part of my set).

I've posted a short article on the Bankhead Highway military motorcade from the November 1920 American Motorist magazine.

Bankhead Highway / Bankhead Highway across America!
« on: February 01, 2010, 10:45:57 AM »
Welcome to the Bankhead Highway board. Feel free to start particular topics related to the Bankhead Highway. You can also post maps, photos, or links of your travels down the road. It would be appropriate to start new threads for tracing the route through various states and cities.

Make sure and check out the Bankhead Highway section on the web site.

The Bankhead Highway was one of the earlier transcontinental auto trails, dating to around 1919-1920. In 1920, the year of Senator Bankhead's death, an army military convoy traveled from Washington to San Diego. The soldiers and officers enjoyed parties at the end of their long journey in San Diego's Balboa Park.

National Old Trails Road / 1915 Travel magazine article on the NOTR

Now posted is a reprinted article on the National Old Trails Road from Travel magazine, May 1915.
The photos are excellent, but the article rambles a bit. It does give a glimpse of how the president of the National Highways Association was trying to encourage American tourism in a new century.
