Vintage 1962 Illinois Tollway Souvenir Pennant. An Illinois Travel Oasis is a type of commercialized rest area located over Interstate highways that are a part of the Illinois Tollway System. The Oases date back to the original tollways construction in 1959. The Oases featured Standard Oil gas stations and Fred Harvey restaurants overlooking the tollways. The restaurants also had gift shops that sold all kinds of things including pennants and the special pennants that featured the year - In this case, 1962. In 1975 Howard Johnson’s took over the restaurants. I can’t speak for today, but when I was a kid in the late 1950’s through the mid 1960’s, the tollway oases were quite a treat to stop for a meal and tour the gift shops. The pennants are quality made.
