Then and Now, Austin-Cullom

1974–Austin Avenue @ Cullom Avenue, view north

2021–the same location

A block south of Montrose Avenue, this part of the Portage Park community is filled with 1920s bungalows and two-flats. As the photos show, there are some post-war houses in the neighborhood as well. I grew up about a 9-iron shot from the Cullom Avenue bus stop.

Not much has changed here in 47 years—though the current owners have done a great job with improvements on my boyhood home.
