Then and Now, Cicero-Milwaukee

1973–Cicero Avenue @ Milwaukee Avenue, view northwest

2021–the same location

The Klee Building, built by a men’s clothing firm, has dominated this corner of Portage Park’s Six Corners since 1931. The older photo captures the final days of trolley bus service in Chicago. I took the picture from the roof-top parking lot of the 12th Street Store, across the intersection.

Today the Klee Building has been expanded, and has been redeveloped for lofts and condos. The 12th Street Store has gone the way of the trolley buses. However, the roof-top parking lot remains a dandy vantage point for photos.
