The commercial building on the left was the Woolworth’s store. The building immediately after it was the High-Low Food Store.
The tall terra cotta-trimmed commercial/apartment building beyond that is at corner of Colfax Ave, and it was our first apartment building in South Shore, 1955, after moving from Hyde Park.
We lived on the top floor over some stores in a tiny no-bedroom apartment. At the corner of Colfax and 75th in that building was Al’s Delicatessen followed by a toy store and Pete’s Barber Shop.
On the right side of the picture, the terra cotta-clad building is at the corner of Exchange Ave. and was the Coronet Restaurant, a popular, inexpensive family restaurant run by Greeks.
In the foreground, just beyond the frame of this picture, were the I.C. tracks along Exchange Ave. At the left of that missing foreground was a Walgreen’s Drug Store, complete with lunch counter and soda fountain.
