Gas Station Completion Nearing on the Lincoln Highway in DeKalb in 1918

From the January 10, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1918, 100 Years Ago.

"The new garage at the corner of First and Lincoln Highway is fast nearing completion, that is, as far as the contractors are concerned.

"The men have been working nearly all week and the brick walls have been climbing at an appreciative rate all during the week.  When once the walls are completed the inside work can be rushed to completion regardless of the weather conditions."
