Then and Now, Sheridan-Juneway

1937–Sheridan Road @ Juneway Terrace, view north

2020–the same location

This is the northeast corner of Chicago, where Sheridan Road swings around Calvary Cemetery to continue into Evanston.  In 1937 this was a great place for advertisers to get their message across to the traffic coming up Sheridan.  Here a giant sign above a gas station is promoting the city’s own Bowman Dairy and the dairy’s radio program.

Today northbound travelers have nothing more than a condo building to attract attention as they head up Sheridan.  But the residents of that building do have a nice view down Sheridan.
