Looking Back: Road Work and Railroad Crossings in 1915

From the September 27, 2015, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back"

From September 1915

**  "Some twenty men and ten teams are moving earth rapidly, making that improvement which has been so greatly needed of widening the long, high pike a half mile east of Sycamore."

Building roads with horses and mules.

**  "The Great Western Railroad Company has erected new gongs in Sycamore to disturb the inhabitants and warn the public to 'Stop, Look and Listen."

Even Back Then.  --RoadDog
