Old Tastee Freeze soft serve ice cream stand. Chicago Illinois USA. Saturday, October 15th, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo last October in the South Chicago neighborhood on the far southeast side of the city of Chicago Illinois.
A popular subject with many photographers, are those little roadside eateries that once blanketed the greater Chicagoland area.
This old 1950's era Tastee Freeze soft serve ice cream stand, was photographed near East 103rd Street.
These roadside or street corner ice cream stands, were usually opened on a seasonal basis. This one with the large metal burgler screens over the windows and doors, may have either already closed for the season by the time of My visit, or may have actually went out of business a nuumber of years ago.
There are still a small number of these in several Chicago neighborhoods, and in the outlying suburbs today.
