Some old pictures of French Autoroutes can be found here :
* http://panneauxenbeton.chez-alice.fr...utoroutes.html
They used to be signposted with concrete Michelin signs... the 130 kph speed limit was imposed on the autoroute network in 1973.

Maybe that sign with CSR was older. From times when name CSR was used for Czechoslovakia. I think it was before 1960.

btw, it's so interesting to watch the cars: in ČSSR old Škoda, DDR Trabant and Wartburg, Poland Polonez and Polski Fiat, Yugoslavia Zastava (but in Yugoslavia we had quite a mixture, a lot of german cars (Beetle, Wartburg, Trabant), Škoda, Polski FIat, Renault 4 (we had a factory)... my grandpa had exactly the same Wartburg as in photo of Jankomir interchange

I can post some pictures of FSO Polonez and Polski Fiat 125p/FSO 1500 But I worry about that it will be off topic...

This is a good example of the evolution happened in the Spanish network in the last decades.



A 'Comarcal' road (żCV-159?), 'Nacional' road (N-VI) and Autovía (A-6).

haha, that picture from spain is cool maybe an 8 lane superhighway, darkblack asphalt, is coming to the right in the future?

@Rawlee, from which year os that pic?

here are some more german pictures from Autobahn Online

AVUS in Berlin, 1925 (nowadays part of A115)


Autobahn Köln-Bonn, 1932, first exit near Wesseling (better: two lane limited-access road), nowadays A555


the same road (Köln-Bonn) in 1973


the first autobahn gas station near Darmstadt in 1936


nowadays A8, here in 1936


after ww2, these signs were posted on the west german sides of the german-german border to remember the downfall of the third reich and were removed after the reunification, when the current border to Poland has been officially regarded as valid. the pic is from 1956.
