From the October 12, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1916, 100 Years Ago.
"A tourist from Iowa was rounding the corner of Fourth and Lincoln Highway this morning in DeKalb and was using the street car tracks and the first thing he knew, the front wheel of his car was between the rail and the guard rail.
"He was compelled to get out and raise the wheel out from between the two with a jack, and it was raining at a great clip at the time, too."
Wonder What that Tourist Was Saying? --RoadDog
