Will That Garage Ever Get Finished in DeKalb in 1918?

From the May 9, 2018, MidWeek  "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"The work on the First street garage being erected by E.P. Elwood and Perry Fisk is progressing at a rapid rate at the present tie and the building will soon be ready for the interior finishes.

"The floors have been laid, and Swanson brothers electrical contractors have had a force of men at work on inside wiring."

Remember, this garage was supposed to be finished in early fall of 1917.  If you want to follow the many posts I've made about this garage at the corner of the Lincoln Highway and First Street, click on the gas Stations label below.
