Sterling , Illinois - 424 Locust Street
View Map

This mural is distinctive; it is the only one in the series to be made up of five smaller murals grouped together.  The display is a collection of early Lincoln Highway era advertisements for the NBC national radio program, The Lincoln Highway Radio Show. Visitors to the Sterling will take a step back in time as they enjoy the murals. Each one is expertly painted from authentic vintage posters promoting the historic Lincoln Highway radio show.  This popular radio drama ran from 1940 to 1942, on 80 stations, using the famed highway as the setting for thrilling tales of life along the
coast-to-coast route. Shinola Shoe Polish sponsored the weekly, featuring many
Hollywood celebrities of that time period as guest stars.
