  1. Steinway’s Drug Store was located in this building on the corner. They had a restaurant in back that served ice cream, etc. Mitchell’s was a bit further west on 71st St. (I don’t know if they ever moved to this corner.) As I recall, Walgreen’s was further west, too, at 71st & Jeffery, at least in the 50s & 60s.

  2. Reminds me of the building on 71st and Jeffrey that the Peter Pan Restaurant was in.

  3. I used to go to a dentist in that bldg. Yuk

  4. My family went to see Dr Munson, the family dentist, in this building when I was a child. There was a cage elevator that went up to the 4th floor, where his office was located. There were many doctors and dentists who had offices located around a central waiting room. As I recall. there were big wooden benches for the patients to wait on, and there was a receptionist for the 15 or so professionals that shared that space. However we usually went on a Saturday morning and the dentist always called in his own patients, as the receptionist was off that day. The dentist office was east-facing with a nice view of the golf club and his chair overlooked the big sunny window. He had a little ante-room in the front of the office where he had his desk, file cabinet, coat rack, and where you paid your bill. No necessity for dental insurance — it was a one-man practice. And he kept Saturday morning hours, too…..I do remember there being a small drugstore on the first floor corner. There was an entrance into the building interior from the drugstore. I do not ever remember my parents getting us any treats, though. This dentist was a Northwestern U grad and practiced at that location until he retired, as far as I remember.

  5. It’s townhouses right now on that corner and it’s a senior facility on the corner in the picture with the side walk. The University of Chicago Senior Center sits on the corner. All the retail on 71st street consists of mostly beauty supply stores and greasy spoons. It is a real nice baker on 71st and Crandon, the Al-Pars liquor store (thank goodness) that was on 71st and Paxton was torn down and it’s a empty lot across the street from there with a empty building next door. There are a lot of beauty salons and barber shops on 71st as well and bike shop I frequent when I need some repairs done. And also there are a lot of cheap dollar stores up and down that strip as well 😦

  6. When I was about 5 years old (about 1048) my mother took me to Dr Yokum in that building for my first visit. I had 11 cavities. No floride. The doctor elected to do 3-4 only at a time. Novocain would be a gift of the future. I can remember fingernails locked to the chair. We lived at 73rd and Yates on the corner. We would walk every visit. We did that 4 times. I think I know what the slow walk to the electric chair must be like.
