From the July 12, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1917, 100 Years Ago.
"A parking line on the north and south sides of Lincoln Highway from Second to Fourth street is being marked out today by the city employees. The men have been at work on the south side of the street marking out the space in which a car is privileged to park.
"This is done that the cars will not park within 15 feet of fire hydrants and also there shall be space left between the front end of the cars and the street car tracks to allow the passage of another vehicle."
Imagine that, already parking problems in DeKalb.
