I think your site is GREAT. I’ve been trying to share with my daughter the atmosphere of living around 71st and all of the stores in the 1960’s..One thing, you have a property listed at 1418 E 73rd st. That area was never considered South Shore. I was called Greater Grand Crossing. I should know, I lived 4 blocks from that property until 1986. I don’t have any pictures but I have a very good memory. I attended St.Laurence Catholic school and was even married in that church in the 70’s. I may still have a color postcard of the church. I must look. If I can find it I will share with you. I have a lot of info to share. Mail me back if I can help.
Thanks for the nice words, Colette.
I’m sure you are right about the boundary for South Shore.
I’m a little casual about defining some locations, although there is the excuse that if it was near enough it might be viewed loosely as part of the neighborhood.
All the best,
