From the June 1, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
19411, 75 Years Ago.
"The street department of Sycamore has been active duribng the past few days painting new white lines on the streets and marking of 'no parking' spaces with yellow lines.
"Most of the marking of the white lines is done very early in the morning before much traffic in an effort to get the paint dryt by the time the stores open and parking spaces start being used. For the most part whole blocks have been roped off and men employed to watch the spaces until dry."
I sure hate it when the painted lines are so faint you can barely see them.
