Lasting impression of a street intersection
Date: August 22, 2014 02:35PM
One early Sunday morning in the mid 40s, my father and I stood waiting at the intersection of Halsted, Grand and Milwaukee, for a Grand Avenue street car that would take us to Navy Pier for a fun fishing excursion beneath the aircraft carriers docked there after the war. It was very quiet, with no street traffic, and a scene of old and seemingly lifeless surrounding buildings that left me with a lasting impression, to this day, of a dark and mysterious past.
Have you ever had an enduring impression of a past city street intersection?
