Nice I used to do ghost tours of a sort for friends and family. I used that very book. st rita's, bachelors grove,ressurection, archer woods, st james etc. Intersting so it sounds like they were going the long way to clearing from garfield ridge. hmm where would the jail have been. Am I understanding correctly. They drove from archer and neva south on archer to 63rd and then est to harlem and then

visted the sign. Looks original in terms of rusty post etc. However, does anyone think it was put there after the fact cause it is so suspicious. Where signs that small? It is so obvious, why would it not have been taken down?

Yeah for sure, but they are in quite weird places. Also, every other house in Garfield Ridge is building up.

Where the old Bridge was. It is pretty huge.

Btw. I am dumb. There are several bridges with the old Damen (uncovered) design. Canal, halsted, California, and Cicero in addition to Ashland. No excuses cause I crossed Cicero many times. I mean yes Damen was more wide open and longer and had duel designs and overall was the coolest, but I truly convinced myself there were only two with that style and that Cicero was not one of them.

Yes they are building rather high priced townhouses on Nottingham. Nottingham forest or something. Not a great location, but I guess better than the houses built up to the tracks on 59th.

Speaking of that area there was a great old building. The District furniture store was like a block long and really stood out with a long and subtle arched roof. A Midway classic.
