web research results Sally's Stage was located on the East side of Western Avenue about a half block south of Devon. It probably closed 20 years ago and the site may now be a Middle Eastern or Indian restaurant. It had a huge pipe organ. Accd to http://www.acorntheater.com/prod2011211111.htm, the organist was: "Highly accomplished theater organist, Don Springer, plays music from the 1920's - 40's including those sweet and happy toe-tapping melodies everyone enjoys. He is the former organist in residence at the Hinsdale Theater in Hinsdale IL and played the Barton Theater Pipe Organ for years as the senior organist at the unconventional and wildly popular Sally's Stage in Chicago, IL during the 1980's." Sally's was owned by a guy named Joe Bortz. He purchased the building that housed Sally's Ribs up on Western Ave. and turned it into Sally's Stage. Accd to some "a cathedral of convoluted bad taste bringing together roller skating singing waiters, a huge theatrical pipe organ and some of the most mediocre pan pizza ever tasted, all in one cavernous room." It also had a mechanical bull. Joe also owned and founded the Dr. Jazz Ice Cream parlors on Montrose and in Evanston.

Finding Information on a Chicago Address \n. \nYou can search on the address at\nhttp://www.cookcountyassessor.com/search/search.asp. \n. \nClick on the camera icon for a …picture! \n. \nA complicating factor to consider: it is my understanding that during the time of the pre-1909 numbering systems, the even and odd numbers were not necessarily on the same side of the street as they are now. \n. \nThe design of a "Y" in a circle is Chicago's emblem and represents the "forks" where the Chicago River's main stem joins its North and South Branches, with the circle representing Chicago's early center. \n. \nBefore 1909, the old street address numbering systems were confusing and inconsistent with each of three "divisions" or areas around the Chicago River's "Y" or "forks". \n. \nOn September 1, 1909 the present "Brennan" numbering system replaced the old systems, except for the central business district south of the main river stem, east of the South Branch, and north of 12th Street, where the change to the new system was delayed until April 1, 1911. \n. \nThe Brennan system based the city's street addresses on State Street for all east/west addresses and Madison Street for all north/south addresses. \n. \nBelow is my interpretation of the old numbering system as explained by Gerrit E. Van Wissink, in his "Street Numbering Changes" appendix to the book, Streetwise Chicago, A History of Chicago Street Names by Don Haynor, published in 1988. \n. \nThe area of the city, north of the main stem of the Chicago River from Lake Michigan to the "forks" and east of the north branch of the river to the lakeshore. All east/west street addresses in this division began with the number 1E (at the river), with numbers becoming larger as they ran to the lakeshore. All of the north/south street addresses began with 1N at the north side of the main stem of the river with numbers becoming larger as they ran to the city's northern limits. \n. \nThe area of the city, south of the main stem of the Chicago River from Lake Michigan to the "forks" and east of the south branch of the river to the lakeshore. All east/west street addresses in this division began with the number 1E (at the lakeshore), with the numbers becoming larger as they ran to the south branch of the river. All of the north/south street addresses began with 1S at the south side of the main stem of the river with numbers becoming larger as they ran to the city's southern limits. \n. \nThe area of the city, west of the branches of the Chicago River - north and south branches -- to the city's limits. All east/west street addresses began with the number 1W at the west side of the of the river branches, with the numbers becoming larger as they ran to the city's limits. All of the north/south street addresses began with 1N and 1S (at Lake Street), with the numbers becoming larger as they ran to the city's northern and southern limits.
Chicago Riot of 1968 . Here is what FAQ Farmers have had to say:. The 1968 riot had nothing to do with the killing of Doctor Martin Luther King. That had happened earlier …in the year. Later in the year, Chicago was also the scene of the anti-war "Days of Rage." The '68 Democratic Convention was the site of the riot. Student radicals, led by the Students for a Democratic Society (S.D.S) and Youth International Party ("yippies"), and thousands of other young people came to Chicago to protest the Vietnam War, and the Johnson/Humphrey party leadership which had escaleted it. They wanted to camp overnight in Grant Park, which is closed at 11:00 pm, like all Chicago parks. When they refused to leave, the Chicago police gave them a "helping hand". The next day, as they tried to interrupt the convention, the CPD forcibly put down the demonstrations.The images of violence in the streets, the harsh methods used by the police and mayhem on the convention floor, became symbols of the strife over the Vietnam War. In retrospect, it marked the fault line which still exists between "conservatives" and "liberals" in American politics, and world-view. . In 1968 The Chicago Police Department was far from what it is today. Which is good and bad. In those days it was not uncommon to "duke" an officer to get out of a ticket or have them look the other way. The same went for the victims of the police and police brutality among a new generation. Plain and simple, the police did pretty much what they wanted. Not that it was a bad thing or they were bad men. Some were, some weren't. However at the time Mayor Richard J. Daley was very powerful and influentional among the Police. And it was understood that heads were gonna get cracked before the hippies and protesters even got to Chicago. Mayor Daley wasn't going to let HIS city be the dance floor for protesters or hippies, yippies, etc. The Chicago Police at the time had a history of picking on hippies and blacks. There are many many reports and stories to back room beatings, phonebooking, nightclubbing ect. This was the sign of the times then. I look at it now as good Chicago history. But the riots were premeditated by the police in 1968. The 11pm park closer was their lame excuse to start beating people. No matter what anybody says, if you read all the articles and all the history, the stories you read and hear will tell you that the police were wrong and abused their power that day under Mayor Daley's orders. On the contrary he was the best mayor we ever had. Try reading "The Boss" by Mike Royco for starters. . Police riot? Not hardly. Having some time to kill and hearing about all the goings on, I went down to Lincoln Park one night and to Grant Park (across from the Hilton another night). While by today's standards (not mine) the CPD could be considered a bit heavy-handed, had the crowds simply dispersed as they were ordered to do, there would have not been a "police" riot or any other kind of riot. I feel for the people who had their cars parked between Lincoln Park and Old Town. They were trashed by the crowds running from the park. I also witnessed people hanging out of the Hilton's windows throwing water glasses, pitchers, etc. down on the Police. . There was more than one riot in Chicago in 1968. In April, following the murder of Martin Luther King, riots broke out in black neighborhoods in quite a few cities, including the west side of Chicago. Twenty blocks were burned and nine blacks were killed. Mayor Richard J. Daley, however, thought the police had been too lenient and so he issued his famous order "to shoot to kill any arsonist" and "to shoot to maim anyone looting." At the end of April 1968 there was an antiwar rally in downtown Chicago. At the conclusion, the police ordered the crowd to disperse and when they did not do so fast enough, the police waded into the crowd with their nightsticks beating people. And then there was the 1968 Democratic Convention. That event -- often just called Chicago '68 -- was an entire week of protests in the streets and in the parks of Chicago which more often than not ended with protestors, bystanders, journalists, and photographers beaten by police wielding clubs. Whose riot was it? An official government study team concluded that it was a "police riot." But the word "riot" implies a degree of spontaneity. Given what had happened in Chicago in April 1968 the police actions look quite predictable, not spontaneous acts of violence. To be sure, especially as the week wore on the protestors were increasingly confrontational and combative. Chicago was trying to shut them down and they refused to go quietly.

Answer . The Wieland Dairy and Ice Cream Factory, (in Chicago), was developed by my great grandparents, Jacob and Gottlieben (Gleich) Wieland. They came to the USA in 1889,… bringing along their 7 sons,1 daughter, and Jacob's father. The Wieland Dairy was very successful, as was the Ice Cream Factory, where the "Good Humor" ice cream bar was developed. In the early 1930's the dairy was sold, for $8.5 million to "Borden", hence the name "Wieland/Borden Dairy" on all the bottles, for a period of time, (stipulated in the sale), later becoming just "Borden". The money was divided equally between the the sons and daughter. Two of the sons were against the sale, so they started CJ Wieland & Company Dairy. Not knowing whether this is a genealogy question or a question about the dairy itself, I welcome all to contact me.. My father was eventuallya partner in the C.J Wieland Dairy and the chief chemist developing the formulas for the products. The Dairy was eventually sold to Hawthorn Melody in 1951. I would LOVE any photos anyone has of the dairy such as someone said they had. C.J. Wieland had an ice cream parlor and was regarded as the premium brand in Chicago. The aidry products were sold both in many markets and by home delivery.
