About Barry Elliott:

Barry Elliott is a resident of Franklin County who has used his professional experience with Google Earth to complete an incredible project. In an ambitious effort that took over a year, Barry created an interactive Google Earth program that shows not only the original route of the Lincoln Highway in our heritage corridor, but displays digital scans of vintage Lincoln Highway postcards embedded in the map at the locations the postcard photographs were taken. Each individual postcard – over 350 in total – is embedded in the map with information about the locations shown and a side-by-side comparison of the postcard and the scene in present day. His efforts enable visitors to practically step back in time to see how the landscape and landmarks have changed from the day the postcard photographs were taken to the Lincoln Highway we still enjoy today in 2023.
