“World’s Greatest Highway”
Pioneer of America’s super toll roads, the Pennsylvania Turnpike spans more than one-eighth of the nation. It stretches 360 miles, from the Ohio line in the East to the shores of the Delaware River in the East. More than 150 million people have traveled over it since it was opened in 1940.

Arrived safe & sound around 5 o’clock Sun. Baby & E. are fine now, they had the flu. E. sends her love. Hope you are well.
Love, Joe & Liza
