Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page.
Part of the fun in operating a blog site like mine, is not always having to strictly use photos of My main subject matter.
This is a rare photograph I had taken in January of 1980, while I was attending nearby Curie High School just north of here at South Archer Avenue.
This was the Jewel Grand Bazaar food store on Chicago's southwest side near Midway Airport. This store opened for business during 1974, and was one of the first Large Jewel Food Stores in Chicago. Prior to this, the Jewel stores were small neighborhood affairs for the most part. This Jewel store was huge, and very much like a warehouse club type of a store in style. There were bins full of grocery items and large displays.
During the 1980's, this became an ordinary Jewel / Osco store due to a corporate change.
