Then and Now, Cermak-Loomis

1954–Cermak Road @ Loomis Street, view east


2022–the same location

Streetcars were in their last days on Cermak Road in 1954. This part of the Lower West Side was an area of factories and warehouses then. Notice the freight track crossing through the intersection.

Today we still find factories and warehouses here. No more streetcars, no freight track. Better street lights, however.
