Lincoln Highway Assoc. and Chicago Motor Club Go Through DeKalb in 1939

From the April 18, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."

July 26, 1939

Photograph of a group of people gathering and watching cars from the Lincoln Highway Association and Chicago Motor Club pass by the DeKalb, Illinois, post office.

The cars are going west on Lincoln Highway.  The gas station that I have been writing about so much while under construction in 1917 and 1918 has its pumps and a sign for Standard Service and gas for what appears to be 7 cents is also in the photo.

A Very Interesting Photograph.  --RoadDog
