Building a New Gas Station in 1917 in DeKalb

From the October 18, 2017, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"Skoglund & Wedberg, who have the contract for the eraction of the new Fisk-Ellwood garage, started work at the corner of First and Lincoln Highway.

"The contract is one of the largest of its kind in the city and much material has been hauled to the scene in order to commence the work .  The work will be rushed with all possible haste in order that cold weather will not stop operations completely."
