The Jacob's Ladder of Montenegro. Leading from the city of Cattaro to Cettinje is the great stone highway that winds its way up the mountain side making 27 turns before reaching the summit overlooking the bay.

It is over this highway that the American Red Cross hauls all its supplies from its bases at Teodo and Cattaro for interior points of Montenegro and Albania. The route is very dangerous at many points as the rustling hulks of trucks and cars at the bottom of the cliffs will testify
