Speaking of Calumet Fisheries (at the 95th Street bridge): when was this business opened at its present location? What's its history? Any old pics or anecdotes?
Inside, there are some nice printed articles about the shooting of the bridge-jumping scene in The Blues Brothers movie put to the wall. That shooting took place in 1979, right in front of this place. So it was there already in 1979.
Calumet Fisheries, My dad would go there back in the early 50's. He would buy Smoked Chubs, about 3 dozen or more for our family. Also smoked shrimps. Every thing was fresh, they smoked the fish right there. I think the place opened in the 40's.
