1950s: "Wayne's Best Home Buy"

This undated photo shows two billboards, likely along Lancaster Avenue in Devon. The left billboard advertises the Howard Johnson's in Villanova ("4 miles ahead"), while the right advertises 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom homes in Wayne for $19,500. Details on the location of this development is not given, though it could be South Devon, Bob White Farms, or any number of other developments being built in the middle of the 20th century.
