Exit 59

As long as I can remember, this old delivery van has sat in a cornfield on the east side of Interstate 69 in Grant County, Indiana. It is just north of Exit 259, though the windshield has "Exit 59" painted on it.

I-69 used to end on the northeast side of Indianapolis, 59 miles south of here. When the highway was extended to Evansville, 200 miles southwest of here, the exit was renamed "Exit 259, and the van's windows were not updated.

I've always wondered why the van was there. It is not advertising any businesses or tourist attractions, and there is nothing at Exit 259 except a couple of gas stations and restaurants.


Update: I discovered in early 2020 that the Exit 59 van has been removed from its place in the field along I-69.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
