old Com Ed payment centers

i'm looking for info about the locations of two old Com Ed payment centers, which i'm not sure are operational any longer. the first was either off Pulaski or Kedzie in the 45th-50th street range, and was situated on a sidestreet just west of the main street. i remember this one from my childhood because of my mother dragging me along with her in the early morning hours to pay a bill. they utilized a system where a red or green light would go on over the lane where the next "teller" was available.
the second one was on the north side somewhere off diversey or belmont, maybe around the avondale area? it was quite large and set back from the street a way. again, they used the "lane light" system. i would go there after work in the early 90's to pay bills. i think i remember going past the Lathrop homes somewhere along the way. (??)
these were actual edison offices, not currency exchanges or anything. i'm way out in the sticks now so i don't know if they even do that any more.
