Drive along route 111 toward Salem and try to remember what the road used to be like before the new entrance and exit ramps went in. If you're a long time resident of the state, think back to what it was like when you grew up or first moved here. It's hard remembering what was where, isn't it?
Fortunately, people have been taking photographs for decades. Some of these photographs have made their way into the "Images of America" series of books. Perhaps they'll spark a memory or two of what life was like years ago.
