Car Slams Into Building in Sandwich, Ill., in 1917

From the September 20, 2017, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"While parking his auto in front of Warner's store in Sandwich, a Mr. Rule from Kewanee who was with his family was making an auto trip, lost control of the car, causing it to jump the curb and crash into the doorway at Warner's shoe department.

"One of the large plate glass at the end of theshow window was shattered when the car struck it and the show case in which gents collars are displayed and which hangs outside between the two doorways was also demolished."
