Work Coming Along On New DeKalb Garage in 1917: Corner of 4th and Lincoln Highway

From the November 29, 2017, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back.

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"The large 'I' beams for the new Ellwood-Fisk garage are being placed this week and the excavation is beginning to take on the aspect of construction operations each day.

"There are several large beams weighing several tons.  The masons have also begun work and most of the base of the building, which is of stone, has been placed and the work is more than being pushed."

After All, Winter Is Right Around the Corner.  --RoadDog
