Default Lincoln Highway Neon

I was playing around one evening shooting some neon along the Lincoln Highway near Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Not really sure if this belongs here in the transportation section but the CedRel does have a long history on the Lincoln highway. It started out in the early as a gas station and members only key club. Local lore claims it was a stopping point for Al Capone and his associates as they made their runs between Chicago and Templeton, Iowa to bring Templeton Rye whiskey back to Capone's speakeasy during the Prohibition era. It was opened as a supper club in 1935 and has been in continuous operation since that time. The food is fantastic, in case you ever have the opportunity to stop.

Thank you.
There's a lot of history along the Lincoln Highway here in Iowa. I like the looks of some of the historic buildings and signs that have been there for generations. I'm going to try and focus on getting some good images of them this year.

Lived near there for many years. Yes the Ced-Rel is good for food. If in the area, there are some good places in the Amanas along with other towns like Belle Plaine.
