Autoists, Beware of the Lincoln Highway-First Street Intersection in DeKalb in 1918
From the April 11, 2018, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."
1918, 100 Years Ago.
"The corner of First Street and the Lincoln Highway is a traffic treacherous at this time inasmuch as the new building there obstructs the view of Lincoln Highway east, to which motorists have become accustomed.
"At this rime the contractors at work on the new garage have large piles of materials near the corner, and this further adds to the danger, and it behooves all autoists to approach this corner slowly to avoid accidents of all kinds."
Autoists, It Behooves You. --RoadDog
