Wow ... I've lived down "on Rush Street" for the past 35 years, and these pics are quite the trip down memory lane! I even saw glimpses of the old Louie's Cantonese Cafe sign (the dragon on the neon is poking out under a few other things there)!
I was just showing my daughter these, and she was amazed at how our now-staid & über-gentrified neighborhood used to look like Las Vegas.
There used to be an awesome mural of the Rush St. neon over at the Clark & Division Jewel, which, unfortunately, was not "rescuable" when they redecorated (I take it that I wasn't the only one to ask if it would be available).
