Looking Back to 1916: The Woodstock & Sycamore Interurban Contemplates Electrifying

From the December 14, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back"

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"The Woodstock & Sycamore, an interurban road operating a line about 26 miles long between Sycamore, Genoa and Woodstock and Marengo and using gasoline cars, contemplates electrifying the road in the early spring."

A largely forgotten part of American transportation in the late 1800s-early 1900s.
