An old neighborhood corner cigar store. (Gone.) Cicero Illinois USA. June 1985.

Hi everyone!
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page, from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.

I took this photo at the northeast corner of South Laramie Avenue and West 25th Street in west suburban Cicero Illinois, way back in June of 1985.

A disappearing icon from the greater Chicagoland area, are these old 1950's era street corner Cigar stores. These were once common along with little stret corner Pharmacy's and grocery stores during the 1950's and 60's.

I passed by this corner recently, and is now a vacant lot.

I am so glad that I took this random snap shot when did. The window with the curtains to the
left, was a little neighborhood diner restaurant.

Eddie K,
