24th & Harrison in Quincy Needs a Traffic Light

It was May 25, 1978, my first day ever in the City of Quincy having moved here from the Kansas City area. I spent the first week in a hotel trying to find a place to live.

It was funny to notice that the road conditions of each state were somewhat different as we crossed each state's border. Illinois' was the worst by far.
