Where in Chicago? (#8)

1935 (CTA photo)
How well could you find your way around the Chicago of the past?
 
The above picture is from 1935. The place is the South Side–in this case, between Cermak and 79th, east of Western. Though the street traffic and store names were different 77 years ago, most of the buildings are still there today.
 
If you think you can identify the location, send in your guess as a comment. I'll post a contemporary photo Friday.
