An old fashioned in booth jukebox at Margie's Candies. 1960 North Western Avenue in Chicago Illinois.

Hi everyone!

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

Nostalgia is one of the key elements that drives the stories, photographs and creativity here at Eddie's Railfan Page.

One of my favorite things I had grown up with in Chicago during the 1960's and 70's era, were these in both table side juke Boxes. These were mostly found back in those days inside Pizzeria restaurants, Ice cream parlors, Street corner Diners, and occasionally a neighborhood tavern or two.

These had mostly disappeared from Chicago by the 1980's. Luckilly this operating example that was found working today alive and well, is located at a place known as Margie's Candies. This 1950's era ice cream soda fountain and candy store establishment from Chicago's past, is located at 1960 North Western Avenue in Chicago.

Another establishment that had these in booth jukeboxes on the southwest side of Chicago, was the old Chesdan's Pizza, which was located at South Archer and Spaulding Avenues in Chicago's Brighton Park neighborhood.
