Holes and Piles Cause Accidents in DeKalb in 1917


From the April 26, 2017, MidWeek   "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"An open ditch on Pleasant street in DeKalb was the cause of a couple of accidents during the night, when taxi cabs ran into the pile of dirt and one into the ditch.

"The red lanterns had been placed but had been blown over by the wind and storm, and it was necessary for the authorities to rouse the workmen out of bed at an early hour this morning to get the lanterns relighted."

Watch Out For That Pile,  It's a Doozy.  --RoadDog
