The full-sized version of the enlargement in the lead image is a 1955 Detroit News photo that contains a section of the John C. Lodge Expressway (M10) taken on opening day. The picture was taken from the Glendale Avenue bridge looking south at the northbound evening rush hour traffic. This bridge is located 6.2-miles north of the beginning of the highway in downtown Detroit and is located between the north and southbound 7A exits.
In the background of the full-sized image (2nd photo below) is the Elmhurst Avenue Exit 6B (only southbound) and bridge. An individual is visible riding a bicycle north on the edge of the left-hand lane opposite of the Packard sedan in the southbound lane.
