Imagine Northern Virginia BEFORE the beltway…

Here is an old map of Northern Virginia from the 1950s BEFORE the beltway existed, before I-95 or Rt. 66 or the Dulles Toll Road–before Dulles for that matter.  Imagine getting around then on all these secondary roads.  Probably was easier than today because it was also before all this traffic!  Click on the map to enlarge.
