The Clydesdales Come to DeKalb Raising War Bonds

From the September 26, 2018, MidWeek  (DeKalb County, Illinois)  "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"Residents of the DeKalb community will have the opportunity to see the famous Clydesdale team when it visits here Saturday of this week to do its part in raising bond sales.  The team is owned by Wilson and Company and its visit is being sponsored by the United States Treasury Department.

"The DeKalb County War Finance Committee is offering this special attraction.  The internationally known six-horse hitch of massive Clydesdale geldings will be on exhibition with the greater part of thee exhibition to take part on Locust Street."
