This photo shows a jeep on the ALCAN (Alaska-Canada) Highway in 1942, one of the first U.S. Army vehicles to travel the partially finished highway. There is an incredible amount of detail in this photo, such as the tiny sign on the radiator of the jeep which can be clearly read in the full size photo.
