This photograph was taken at the corner of Archer Avenue and 43rd Street in April of 1989.
This Neighborhood Community is called Brighton Park, and is located on Chicago's Southwest Side.
The buses seen here in the photograph, are 1970's era GMC "New Look" buses, also known as "Fishbowls" for their unique windshield design. The paint scheme on the westbound bus in the foreground, was introduced in 1989, replacing the two tone green and off white color scheme on the background bus. These buses were in their last years of service at the time of the photograph. The last ones were retired in 1996. Some had become Maintenance-Work Service buses. Chicago recieved it's first buses of this type from General Motors in 1962, followed by a batch around 1973 and 74, and their last batch in the year of 1977. These buses ruled Chicago's streets during a long rein.
