Plant for a more beautiful America
In the thread in the previous entry, I mentioned the beautification campaign promoted by First Lady, Lady Bird Johnson, in the 1960s. I still remember the stamps that were produced as part of the effort.

The Highway Beautification Act, which put restrictions on billboards, was one element of the program and vision.
