From the November 30, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1916, 100 Years Ago.
"The street cars running into the city had some little difficulty yesterday and last night on account of the weather conditions. The rails were somewhat slippery and the getaway and stops were somewhat difficult.
"The rails were kept cleaned off today, however, and after one or two trips this morning the cars were coming in and leaving nearly in schedule time."
Not sure what city this was, but probably DeKalb.
