Looking west from the intersection of 25th Street and Laramie Avenue.Cicero Illinois USA. June 1985.

Hello everyone!

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

I grew up on the near southwest side of Chicago Illinois, and began taking 35 MM photographs in 1983.

It is almost hard to believe, just how many of My early photographs I had taken, are now actually historic photographs used for reference by local historians and residents past and present.

I took this photo in west suburban Cicero Illinois, way back in June of 1985.

We are facing west at the intersection of South Laramie Avenue and west 25th Street. This view looking west along West 25th Street, has been greatly altered today.

Chiko's Liqours, is still here in 2011, but the row of storefonts containing the old Woolworth's Store, has long since been demolished, and is now the site of a municipal parking lot.

The Palace Bowl bowling alley in the background, was demolished approximately 8 years ago or so. This bowling alley, was used in the movie Uncle Buck, wich starred the late great comic actor John Candy.

I am so glad that I took this random snap shot photo when i did back in June of 1985.

Eddie K.
