The Corner of West 111th Street and South Kedzie Avenue. January 1986. Chicago Illinois USA.
Not even a cold windy gloomy day with snow flurries could stop Me from having a pleasant afternoon in Chicago's Mount Greenwood Neighborhood. A westbound 1983 CTA Canadian Flyer transit coach has just dropped off a passenger at this populair shopping district on Chicago's southwest side. I have many happy memories of time well spent in this neighborhood. I frequently rode the Route #52 Kedzie California bus from My old neighborhood to the south Terminal at West 63rd Place and south Kedzie Avenue. From there I would board the Route #52A South Kedzie bus and either ride it to West 95th Street and South Kedzie Avenue in the village of Evergreen Park Illinois, or continue south to 111th and Kedzie in the Mount Greenwood Neighborhood, or even to the end of the line to the city limits at Alsip Illinois. This was always a favorite bus ride for Me. The Corner of 111th and Kedzie Avenue was yet another favorite Landmark and Destination for Me during the 1980's.
