Then and Now, 106th-Ewing

1944–106th Street @ Ewing Avenue, view east

2019–the same location

In 1944 the northeast corner of 106th-Ewing was the site of Mausen’s Tavern, which connoisseurs claimed served the best hot beef sandwiches in Chicago.  Down the street from Mausen’s is an old Shell gas station.  Keep going east on 106th, and you’ll find yourself in Indiana.

Today a parking lot occupies the property where Mausen’s once stood.  The Shell gas station has been replaced by a number of store-front businesses, including a pet-grooming salon.  Now in the distance on 106th, the Skyway viaduct marks the Indiana border.
