This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.
On Saturday, November 6th, 2010 from 1:00 until 3:00 PM, I will be hosting an event entitled "The Chicagoland Railfan Photo Slideshow" at the Elmwood Park Public Library. The Library is located at 1 Conti Parkway Circle in near northwest suburban Elmwood Park Illinois.
Due to the popular demand and many requests I have recieved from people who viewed this at My recent show at The Niles Historical Society and Museum on Sunday, October 24th, 2010...I will be showing My homemade musical photo slideshow entitled
"When Chicago Rode The Streetcars", wich is set to authentic historic period music from the era to help set the mood for the show.
If You were one of the many people who had grew up in Chicago prior to the end of CTA electric streetcar service in 1958, or perhaps You also enjoy listening to the "Big Band music of Glen Miller, Artie Shaw or Tommy Dorsey...Then You won't want to miss this presentation being held in the downstairs community room.
I have recieved many requests for this musical photo slide show, as many people loved seeing streetcars in Chicago once again the way it actually was back in the day.
