Rare photo of a posted US 32 shield

This route existed for only seven years, way back in the late '20s and early '30s.  Most of it was replaced by US 6 in 1931, and the remainder was absorbed by US 34 in 1934.  (Kudos to mapmikey for finding the photo)

Love it.  Keep that good content coming!  I like seeing what different numbers look like on a US shield, for some reason.  If the USA had a complete set of numbers from 1-100, I would feel a completely irrational sense of satisfaction.

Looks like it might be somewhere along Ogden or Jackson in Chicago based on the buildings.

That’s a nice find, good to be able to see a proper US 32 finally.

It is Ogden at the current location of I-290...
