From the October 15, 2014, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois).
1914, 100 years ago.
** The Sycamore city council has concluded to give the Woodstock-Interurban company another chance.
** Since the state aid road opened a couple weeks ago it has been much frequented bu automobiles. Somebody undertook the task to count the automobiles on Sunday that passed a given point, and when he got to over 300 he became tired and quit.
I think this new state aid road might be the current Illinois Highway 23 between Sycamore and DeKalb.
