It's good to see -- via Google Street View - that at least the cleaners are still in existence on the NW corner of Melvina and Archer, after 45 years have passed. I totally forgot about those concrete markers.
I do remember the concrete markers/pillars along Archer Avenue, from about Central west to Harlem, in the 1950s; and often wondered about their purpose. John Wentworth -- Chicago mayor and Congressman -- had his farm house on the NE corner of Archer and Harlem, and owned much of the land in the vicinity. The farm house was still in existence in the 50s.
