Pulling Out of the Quick Sands in Sycamore, 1917


From the August 9, 2017, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"Workmen have begun operations on the stretch of state aid road between the Sycamore limits and the DeKalb township line out near the Claycomb place.

"The cement road from the city limits on each side of the of the street car tracks runs to where it turns into the side of the highway at which place it will follow the center of the highway.  This will carry ba very pleasant message to those who have traveled the quick sands or worse along the pike between Sycamore and the end of the state road at the township line."
