This picture was taken

This picture was taken probably in the mid to late 1970's. The empty parking lot on the right was occupied by a building into the early 1970s, and the automobiles are all from the 1970s or late 1960s. The winter of 1976-76 had a lot of snow, as I remember, and I wrecked my car on the ice on Wabash avenue at 25th street, about 2 miles east of this location. On the left side of the picture in the forground you can see O'Day's resturant and OSCO drugs. The green painted building had a teen hangout on the second floor called "The Loft".
