Streets a Bit Dusty in DeKalb in 1917

From the April 26, 2017, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"The oldest sprinkling wagon in DeKalb, repainted and other repairs made, was out today giving the main street a soaking.

"The advent of the wagon was received with gratitude by many business men as the dust along the street was getting thick, filling the stores at every opportunity.""
