A Big Horse Sale in DeKalb in 1918

From the May 2, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"Last week's horse sale was one of the best the city has seen in several months, and the unusual large crowd of buyers and sellers on the street was evidence of the fact.

"In the evening there was a total of five carloads, about 95 animals, shipped to Chicago markets."

Less Need for Horses As Cars Ascend.
