      1. 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?

  1. 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.
