Loomis & Jackson

This is, admittedly, a longshot, but I thought I would take a try at this. My maternal grandfather had a small delicatessen, grocery, and bar at 316 S. Loomis Street for years. It was located on the west side of Loomis, just north of the Eisenhower Expressway. The site is now covered by the south building of Whitney Young High School. He had the store from approximately 1922 to 1953. I grew up hearing stories about the old store and neighborhood, and just wondering if anyone out there might have stories or pictures of the old block.
