Rough Railroad Crossing a Hundred Years Ago in DeKalb
From the May 30, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1918, 100 Years Aho.
"Automobile drivers of DeKalb and the community are cautioned about the dangers of driving over the Seventh Street crossing, until such time as the proper repairs are made there.
"A crossing plank for one of the side tracks crossing has become loose and one end is protruding about four to six inches above the remainder of the crossover. Driving over the crossing rapidly and not seeing this obstruction might cause a serious accident."
What!! Rough Railroad Crossings a Hundred Years Ago!! Who'd a Thunk It. --RoadDog
