JOHN CHUCKMAN’S PLACES – SOUTH SHORE CHICAGO: IN MEMORIAM: PRESTON UNEY, MY OLD, GOOD FRIEND – IN HIS LAST YEAR AND A CROP FROM BRADWELL CLASS PHOTO – 1955   1 comment

 

 

NOTE TO READERS: I AM ALWAYS INTERESTED IN OLD SNAPSHOTS OR OTHER MATERIALS WHICH SHOW ASPECTS OF SOUTH SHORE LIFE, ESPECIALLY AROUND THE 1950s AND 1960s. THERE ARE SEVERAL PLACES FOR WHICH I HAVE YET TO DISCOVER ANYTHING, AS, FOR EXAMPLE, THE OLD SHORE THEATER. IF YOU HAVE ANY WORTHWHILE OLD PHOTOS, I WOULD APPRECIATE RECEIVING A SCAN FROM YOU FOR POSTING ON THE SITE.
