These are fabulous! Wow, it is a real treat for me to see these since I live in Chicago! Thank you for posting these gems! Cher xo
Nice, do you recognize anything? I think they have upgraded all the busses.. 🙂
Yes, I do as a matter of fact! The houses are a very popular style (3-flat, 2-flat) and continue to be that way to this day. I also think the boat, “Success” photo shows the Wrigley Building in the background. Thank you again so much for posting these! So you have a family tie to Chicago?
I have no relatives there (as I know of), my grandfather worked there 2-3 years then he traveled back home to sweden.
Well I think it is wonderful that you have these incredible photos!! 🙂
Molto belle queste foto del passato!!
He was kind of a hottie!
So wonderful to see!
I’m from the Chicago area
Just forwarded this post to my family
Thanks for sharing!
Wonderful pics from the past!!! I agree….They are priceless!!!
I wonder about the tyres on the bus. They don’t look pneumatic although they should be…..and the keys safety pinned to shirts; probably a locker key? Interesting photos for sure.
I agree, it looks like the wheels surface are solid.
And tant must be a locker key, they only have their tiny swimwear on. 🙂
Wow, that takes me back. Those were the good old days.
