Resource of Advertising Descriptions (ROAD)

ROAD, the Resource of Outdoor Advertising Descriptions, is a database providing access to over 50,000 descriptions of images of outdoor advertising dating between the 1920s through the 1990s. Over 30,000 of the images have now been digitized and are accessible from this site, as well as through the ROAD 2.0 Digital Collection. The materials described here are drawn from collections in the holdings of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University and are included as a supplement to an NEH grant-funded project to provide access to Duke's outdoor advertising material. Read More »
