Looking Back to 1916: DeKalb's Annual Road Day

From the November 16, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"DeKalb's annual road day, which was conducted yesterday out at Carlton, was without a doubt as big a success as any previous affairs of like nature, and those in charge of the affair at both ends of the line are indeed pleased with the results attained.

"DeKalb shovelers started out from here yesterday morning at seven o'clock and the last auto load returned sometime late last evening, tired, but satisfied that they had again helped in doing work that would be of direct benefit to DeKalb as a city.

"The shovelers were met at Carlton by 52 teams moving as much as possible, and from all reports the work was accomplished in fine shape."
