Where in Chicago? (#5)

1975 (photo by the author)

Could you find your way around the Chicago of the past?

The picture above was taken in 1975. The location is the South Side--in this case, somewhere east of Western, between Roosevelt and 79th Street. Most of the area looks different today, but there are clues that can help you identify the site.

If you think you know the location, send in your guess to the "Comments" section. I'll post a contemporary photo tomorrow.
