Admiral Ernest J. King Highway Sign

Here's a clipping from the October 24, 1959 Lorain Journal that I found in the Special Collections file of the Lorain Public Library. (Click on it for a larger view.) It shows an Admiral Ernest J. King highway marker that used to be on Route 58 (Leavitt Road) on the southern approach to the city. One of these signs is now down at the Admiral Ernest J. King tribute space.

When I saw this, I thought, "Oh, yeah--I kind of remember that!" since this was my neck of the woods while I was growing up. Check out two-lane Leavitt Road in the background, along with the farmhouse!

I wonder why the sign was taken down in the first place?
