The old Santa Fe tower / ex Crane Plumbing Supply building during demolition. Chicago Illinois USA. July 1993. Dennis Madia photograph.
This now "Rare" photograph, was sent to Me by one of My readers Mr. Dennis Madia.
Dennis has informed Me, that He is a former Chicago resident who hails from the
Portage Park neighborhood on the northside of the city of Chicago, and today resides in Cinncinati Ohio. Dennis took this photo in July of 1993, looking south along the west side of South Kedzie Avenue near west 41st Street, in Chicago's Brighton Park neighborhood,on the near southwest side
of the city of Chicago Illinois.
This is at the east entrance of the Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad's Checkpoint Chico -Piggyback /intermodal facility adjacent to the A,T & S,F
A special thanks to Dennis Madia for documenting
this now lost piece of Southside Chicago.
Thank You Dennis.
