I can remember a butcher shop south of Bargin Town that we use to go to around that time frame as well. I think it was closer to Armitage Ave. Wasn't there a White Castle in that area around 1970?

How's the sign coming along? Any chance that your sign is in this book? Good Old Neon. http://francesarcher.com/2014/12/book-review-good-old-neon/ I found some more of Chicago's pictures at PicturingUS. If I see anything of value on the sign, I will pass it on to you.

Ed & Ervs Centrella Food Mart. They also had a meat counter as well. I knew them. I use to shop there back in the late 1980's, early 1990's when I lived in the neighborhood. They closed last December. Denny, one of the sons was a butcher there along with his father then. His brother, Andy also worked there at that time. He took care of the register. Here is a picture of the store. Denny

I think my late friend Ed worked for the Continental Coffe Co. I know he worked for a coffee company but not sure which one. Was there a Stewert's Coffee Co. in Chicago around that time?

There is a building at 1618-22 West Pratt at Ashland that is still standing. I am not sure of the status of it now but it looks like it is still being used by the phone company. The building was built around 1953. Also Loyola University Chicago, Lake Shore Campus had a sub station for Illinois Bell back in the mid 1970's. It was in the lower level of the Jesuit residence building at the time.
