About this product
- DescriptionThe Huebinger series of automotive publications were popular a century ago as adventurous motorists braved the primitive roads and uncertain terrain of Iowa and beyond. Noted landmarks on these roadmaps include schools, houses, churches, piles of stumps, unusual rocks, cemeteries, and windmills. Today, these map collections are actually history books showing how towns and cities have developed, roads have changed, and some communities have disappeared. Huebinger's Map and Guide For Des Moines, Ft. Dodge, Spirit Lake, and Sioux Falls Highway: A Direct Road From Iowa's Capital to Her Beautiful Lake Country was originally published by The Iowa Publishing Company, Des Moines, Iowa, in 1912. The original booklet was 5 inches by 8 inches. This 2012 reprint is a scanned reproduction which has been enlarged to 8.5 inches by 11 inches. Each page has been individually resized at high resolution and color-corrected to improve contrast and sharpen the images. This Guide was scanned directly from the 1912 original, t from a later scanning. In addition to maps of each mile of the Des Moines, Ft. Dodge, Spirit Lake and Sioux Falls Highway, there are narrative descriptions of the towns, vintage advertisements suitable for framing, and the minutes of a meeting of the Des Moines, Ft. Dodge, and Spirit Lake Highway Association held in Ft. Dodge, Iowa on May 24, 1911.
