I have a 1950 edition of the Rand McNally road atlas. Is there something you need me to look up?

Here's the route old Bypass 50 followed:
From US 50 at Cleves (near the Indiana border), north along what is still Ohio Route 128 to Ross, then
Southbound across the Great Miami River, along US 27 (originally Colerain Pike, later -and still - a short-distance expressway), then
Eastbound along Kemper Rd, formerly also Ohio Route 126 until it was shifted to the Cross-County Highway, into Springdale - then
Southeastward along what's still Ohio Route 4 (Springfield Pike) into Woodlawn, then
East again, on Glendale-Milford Rd to Blue Ash, then
South on (?) road to Cooper, east to Montgomery Rd, then
North on Montgomery briefly before heading back east on what's again (to this day) known as Glendale-Milford Rd all the way to the end - US 50 just west of the Little
Miami River bridge.

There are lots of Websites such as losthighways.com where you should be able to view/purchase old maps. I love those old maps, but couldn't tell you why!

I think goyguy's account of the route is pretty much on the money. There may have been a day when Bypass 50 was a reasonable route, but that must have ended back in the 50s. Today it would seem like an all day journey, and maybe could be.

That seems pretty straight forward. It was all out in the county. Almost a straight line from Cleves to Milford. And back in the day, going through downtown Cincinnati and along the River was no box of chocolates like it is today with Columbia Parkway and a four lane River Road.

I remember as a young kid, early 50s, when my aunt and uncle had a Frisch's Big Boy on US 50 between Lawrenceburg and Aurora. From Madeira we would take Gailbraith west to Blue Rock and then Blue Rock to route 128 and down through Hooven to US 50. What I remember the most was coming back home late at night and how desolate Blue Rock was at that time. The refinery at Hooven was always a beacon with the perpetual fie burning off gas vapors.
