LIFE magazine photographer Allen Grant hit the road to report on the Lincoln Highway, US Route 30.  (Most of the shots are from Nebraska or Wyoming; minimal info is supplied in the captions.)

Postwar prosperity led many to travel, looking for new opportunity or just to see the country.  These photos are part of a collection online that were never published back in the day; see the entire set here:

Not as common as smallmouth in the river but from time to time a bucket mouth makes it’s presence known. #largemouthbass #flyfishing #underwater #puremichigan
