Looking Back to 1916: War in Europe Helping American Industry

From the March 2, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"Nearly every community in Northern Illinois in which manufacturing is carried on of almost any kind is enjoying a period of prosperity and the factories are running with increased forces and skilled workers are in great demand.
