US 15 A

Special routes of U.S. Route 15:

U.S. Route 15 Alterboro–Creedmoor alternate route
Existed 1936–1957

Established in 1936 as a renumbering of U.S. Route 401, from the South Carolina state line to Creedmoor, going through the cities of Laurinburg, Raeford, Fayetteville, Lillington, and Raleigh. In 1950, South Carolina discontinued the US 15A concurrency with US 15, but was not till 1953 when North Carolina followed and moved US 15A's southern terminus in Laurinburg. In 1957, US 15A was renumbered back to US 401.

Merry Christmas

Christmas won't be Christmas without another Dickey snap in front of the tree but I guess we'll muddle through somehow.

A very merry Christmas to Shorpy and all the Shorpy-ites! I look forward to another year of excellent pictures and even more excellent comments.
