I'm sure I could locate some pics from the early 70's.My Grandparents lived in this area until their passing. (Across from Crane Clock) if you are familiar. I believe I have pics of the library, theatre, gerties, hi-lo, niesners dept. store, archer ave. bigstore, Davis school, the shack, alot of memories here.AnswerThese aren't from the 70's but maybe it'll help: picturingchicago AnswerI grew up in the Brighton Park area. I'm 52 years old and was wondering if there's anyway I can get copies of the pictures from Ronald. When our house was sold the pictures got lost.
When I read Ronald's msg about the Crane Clock, Hi-Lo, Gerties, Brighton Park theatre and Niesners Dept store it brought back so many memories for me.
My first job was at "Niesners" in 1969. I was in my last year of high school and on a work/school program. Kelly let me out of school early everyday I worked from 2:00 to closing. I felt very lucky to get that job.
Hi-Lo was the first big grocery store in our neighborhood.
My grandmother always said if you can see the Crane Clock you'll never be lost.
The "Shack" you are really taking me back to some good times.
"Archer Avenue Big Store" we got our school uniforms there. I went to St. Joseph and St. Anne grammer school. Kelly High School.
"Gerties" I had my first ice cream cone
"Davis" school was a grammer school except for the third floor - It was were I went my freshman year of High School,the main building was too crowded.
"McKinley Park" every Sunday, my brothers (I have nine of them no sisters)and I would go swimming at the pool and fishing in the lagoon.
Did you know the fire house right off Archer Avenue was the fire house they used in the movie "Backdraft"?
Would you happen to have a picture of the newspaper stand outside of the bank on Archer Avenue?
I would be willing to pay for copies of anything you have. Reading your e-mail has brought back so many memories.
"back-of-the-yards" On a really windy day the smell would hang over our neighborhood.
My thoughts are all over the place while sending this msg. I just can't believe I found this wed site.
If you send me some questions about what you are interested in I'll try and answer them for you.
