Mr. Quinn Meets a Calf in 1917

From the December 6, 2017, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"P. Quinn, of Clare, who recently invested in a new Hudson automobile has taken every precaution keeping the car in good shape, safety first being his slogan whenever there is a shadow of a doubt.

"The forepart of the week, the Quinns, together with some guests drove the car to Rockford and the trip was one of enjoyment.  Just before turning into the gate at home, on the return trip, the driver encountered a herd of cattle and as he did so, a calf kicked at the car as it was getting out of the road, breaking off a headlight.

"The rest of the family and the guests have had considerable fun at Mr. Quinn's expense."

Pretty Funny, Mr. Quinn.  Well, At Least It Wasn't a Flivver.  --RoadDog
