Re: Highway80

Oh yes,
We have a picture of the infamous Huey P. Long dedicating the first
concreted portion of Hwy 80 in Louisiana, which occurred in Bossier Parish, at what is now the intersection of Hwy 157 and Hwy 80. I believe
the date was April 1930.
Mrs. Huey Long is wearing an actual fox stole (with head attached.)
