Bing -- Aerial Flight for Alderman
Woolf and Frank Peck.

Alderman Woolf and former Alderman Frank Peck, seated in a motor car, were inspecting the streets in the vicinity of the alderman's laundry yesterday afternoon at Seventeenth street and Belleview avenue, when they ran afoul of a wagon loaded with coal slack. There was an aldermanic shakeup and a cloud of coal dust, each of which took several minutes to settle. The chauffeur reported "no damage."

Not so with Alderman Woolf. He had been watching that coal dust. Much of it had filtered through the open laundry windows, and as a result a part of the afternoon's wash had to go back to the tub.
