What a great snapshot.

Although we don't know the exact location of this photo, it's in the Ada neighborhood.

And, now we know how far from Ada is Lima, Alger, Kenton and Marion. Before the invention of the GPS, road sign markers pointed the way. In this 1931 photo the sign post shows:
• Lima at 15 miles, or is it 16?
• Alger at 3 miles
• Kenton at 13 miles
• Marion at 40 miles
