Winning Nomination

From a modest start during the fall of 1925, consisting of ten to twelve sets of three-foot-long signs placed in measured intervals along two roads out of Minneapolis--one being Route 69 to Albert Lea, the other on the road to Red Wing--a local advertising idea from Minnesota grew to encompass every state but four in the continental United States, and a new advertising concept was born.
