From the August 17, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1916, 100 Years Ago.
"Wiswall & Wirtz, who have been leading in the furniture and undertaking business in this part of the state for a number of years seem determined to continue to do so. Today they are on the street with a fine new specially designed DeKalb motor delivery truck in order to furnish them better delivery facilities for their goods than they have enjoyed in the past.
"This firm has patrons living 25 miles away and with the new equipment truck they can furnish up to the minute deliveries."
If Not Delivering Furniture, the Truck Could Also deliver Bodies? --RoadDog
