Thanks for sharing. Great pictures at the blog. Unless I missed something I didn't see a location for each one. I know of more than one Gary elementary school so I wondered which one it was.

I have a birth certificate from 1937 which says it's called Research and Educational Hospital and signed by a dr. George Rizek at 1819 W. Polk st., Chicago, IL. I was always told this was Illinois Research hospital and it now appears to be the University of Illinois chicago Medical Center. .

Wow, great thread and thanks for sharing all the wonderful pictures. I lived in that area (Between 14th and 16th on Springfield, Avers, Pulaski, and later Kostner) for many years.

We went to some of those y'all mentioned, but there was one that I liked best and it was out near Lyons I believe and I think it was called Millbridge or something like that. Does anyone know what I'm talking about since I think I've got oldtimer's and memory problems. LOL

I can't really help but just want to say it seems like your post will be interesting as it may spark a lot of memories.

We had Joe's on the corner of 15th and Springfield. And Brickman's I believe was the name on the next block over at 15th and Avers.
