Looking Back to 1916: Horses Losing Out to Automobiles

From the August 24, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"The hitching posts and rails which have been located on the south side of Locust Street between First and Third streets for a good many years have been removed on account of the  paving which is going to be laid there making it undesirable to have rigs hitched along the street anymore.

"These same railings have been set on the north side of Girard Street between Fifth and Seventh streets and considerable hitching space is afforded at this new location."
