Day 88 - The Monon Route
I have a bunch of cool travel-related scrapbook papers and stuff. One had this great old advertisement for the railway line that had a "hub" through Monon, Indiana, and was an important North/South line from Chicago. This alligator ad is for the run all the way down to Jacksonville, Florida. The railroad made cast-iron match holders shaped like alligators, labeled "Monon Line". Apparently these became so collectible that now there are reproductions circulating on eBay and elsewhere.
