If that was your grandfathers store then you must know Margaret Kirchoff who was a daughter I believe and she married John Groeneir who was my Grandfathers Brother and lived right behind this store on Laramie and their grandaughter Gale and her Husband now own the house and she is involved with the jefferson park historical society. And if you look at the rest of my pictures there is a house just to the south that they owned it has a steeple top on it.
No it was completed in Sep 84.
Actually 44 And still up in Chivcago somewhere, along with his sister Vicky who's 36.
My great aunt and uncle kirchhoffs owned this house, you can see their Conservatory just north of here in a picture I posted that there daughters husband took in early 1900.
My good friend Paul was a baker there.
A scene from "The Color of Money" was shot here in 1985 with Paul Newman as pool shark Fast Eddie Felson, and Tom Cruise as Vincent Lauria I used to shoot pool with friends there I used to live right around the corner on Leland.
Drasla I can do that send an e mail address I don't know how that works. I have another picture of it from around the turn of the century my mother's Aunt and Uncle lived there. I think they were kirchoffs.
This was the bus stop where Forest Gump told his life story from, of course the bench has been replaced with a flower bed and it really isn't a bus stop.
Ted thanks for the comment I worked at United from May 60 to July 65 an exciting place to work back then. The kennedy Expressway was only completed from Foster Ave to Mannheim rd, then just a little two lane road to the terminal. We used to park in front of the old terminal which later was the international terminal. I don't think I'd want to be there now days.
klasse Haus, sagenhafte Farben und sanfte Spiegelung auf dem Strassenbelag - ein Hammerfoto!
