HWY 6 #131

Above - Postcard view of Hwy 4 & Hwy 6 in Downtown Durham (1950)

This interesting postcard photograph shows the overlapped route of Hwy 4 & Hwy 6 through Downtown Durham. This short concurrent route of Hwy 4 & Hwy 6 was discontinued in the early 1950s when a new Hwy 4 alignment was constructed at the western entrance to Durham. Double-shield King's Highway sign assemblies are visible along the street in the background. Compare the historic postcard view shown above with this present day photograph which I took from roughly the same location in 2008. See an Enlarged Photo here.
