  1. The two story building behind the fence is actually 7837 S Paxton. And I just so happen to live there now! It was so surreal and exciting to find this photo. All of the buildings pictured are still there, and virtually unchanged from the outside. I believe we even had the same furnace until a few years ago. When the furnace was being replaced, I noticed the furnace had a number to call for service repairs that was only a few digits long and started with two letters, I believe.

    A neighbor mentioned that an older woman and her sister used to own this building and the identical building next door. That must be the women pictured. Do you have anymore information about them?

    • Thank you, Ellen. I do love comments which add that kind of information.

      I’m sorry, I know nothing more. I came across the photo a few years ago and whatever I know is in the title. It is a wonderful old neighborhood image.

      All the best,

      John Chuckman
