For many of us, born before cell phones, we used the Thomas Guide to navigate our way around town. Looking for an address or street? Pull out that trusty spiral-bound 5000 page atlas to forage your way through streets and cities.
Want to go on a cross country trip? Head down to your local AAA store to wait in line and map out your destination.
