ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
More detailed information can be found with the original image. Full details where also once available in E.A. Hungers article "Maintenance of Wisconsin's Secondary Highways." Image taken through Lawson Studios of Chicago, Ill. International Harvester Company employees sometimes stamped photographs with the word 'kill.'

This would prevent someone from accidentally using an outdated photograph in an advertisement or other company publication. For a small fee WHS staff can remove the word from the image during the reproduction process.
