Old State Road 28 West
This months featured photo From April of 1969 this photo shows what the old State Road 28 looked like before it expanded into a four lane highway. To the right you can see the entrance to Ing-Rich Porcelain plant. In the distance one of the iconic Frankfort water towers (red and white checkered paint job) and to the left is Scheid Auto Sales. The heavy equipment seen to the left of the road appears to be prepping for the expansion. (Photo contributed by John Faucett)
