to communicate effectively, even minor locations of restaurants now gone, it requires more than mere 'technicalities'
the very last time I remember going to that old elston/cicero tavern was Xmas of 1972. it was torn down quickly in 1973 (like they were in a hurry)
in early april of 1974 there was an unexpected major chicago blizzard, starting @ 12:45pm. I watched it come down, getting worse and worse by the hour, from my 2nd flr Skil office window, and when quitting time finally came (not that they let us out early) traffic on both elston & cicero aves was solid and immobile (the Skil employees parking lot was on the southside of elston, where now there's a bank w/ drive-thru). my normal 40 min. commute home actually took 5 hours that day, and I don't recall getting stuck anywhere in the snow, but I do recall driving down streets that appeared to have traffic movement, regardless if it was the correct direction for my getting home
at that time the elston avenue bus still operated and I used that once in awhile
