A Concord Pastor gave this blog a nice shout-out today -- as well as an add to his links list.
I'm very honored.
To illustrate the post, the good pastor found this great old-time road map (at right) from the Pikes Peak Ocean-to-Ocean Highway Association.
The map shows the route from "Pittsburg, Pa. to New York City" (434.3 miles) with a branch to Philadelphia.
The map is from that brief period around the turn of the last century when the Steel City went without an 'h' in its spelling. According to this Wikipedia entry, the 'h' made a comeback in 1911.
