Unpaved street at Fulton Illinois
An elevated switchman's tower and railroad crossing guards are visible in the foreground, followed by the office for the " Fulton Journal " and down the road a tall brick building with " Northern Illinois College " on the tower. But, the best signage of all is three posters on the fence for " Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show ".

The Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Depot in Morrison saw the first train roll into the station in October 1855. Morrison, at that time, was a newly laid out community, sparsely populated. John Furlong piloted the train in.  The next day his small house was moved in on a flat car from what is now called Round Grove. According to Wayne Bastians' History of Whiteside there was no celebration of record for this momentous occassion.
