Old friends reunite at the Chicago Public Library's Clearing Branch. Saturday, January 19th, 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
This photograph is an example of some of the wonderful and often unexpected pleasant surprises that can happen when I am hosting a public speaking event.
Just recently on Saturday, January 19th, I was hosting a multi media photo slideshow, video and lecture event about "Chicago's Amusement Parks Of The Past", at the Clearing branch of the Chicago Public Library, located at 6423 West 63rd Place in Chicago.
In this photograph, my good friend and fellow Chicago railfan Anthony C (Right), had the unexpected and absolutely wonderful surprise of seeing his old friend Tim Hadac at the show.
Anthony and Tim used to work together many years ago, at the Southwest News Herald newspaper office on South Kedzie Avenue near West 63rd Street in Chicago.
Anthony is now involved in commercial real estate properties management, while Tim is the managing editor of the Southwest Chicago Post online internet news source.
Many stories were swapped after all these years between the two of them that day.
