Found this picture of an old roadside acetylene highway lighthouse. I think the advertisement on the side says "These roads are full of Studebakers".

Neat.

wow, as much trivial knowledge as I have, I have never heard of a 'highway lighthouse'. Hope someone gives some explanation and history of these things.

That is one heckuva neat thing.

My email is topdownman @ gmail.com. I've got a few requests to register that I haven't gotten to yet and I think yours is there.
