Goshen's Lincoln Highway 1915
Postcard shows view looking north on Main Street (Lincoln Highway) in 1915. Courtesy of Goshen Historical Society.
The image shown above is a scan of an old postcard from the collection of the Goshen Historical Society. It shows a view looking north on Main Street, which was the route of the Lincoln Highway, from Jefferson Street.
It is interesting to see that the card makes a point of featuring the Interurban trolley, with the tracks running down the center of Main Street. The brick construction of the Lincoln Highway is also clearly visible.
The postcard does not show an actual date that the photo was taken, but the stamp was cancelled in 1915.
The image below is a similar view showing the same location in the winter of 2008.
