The and Now, Orchard-Deming

1911–Orchard Street @ Deming Place, view north
2022–the same location

Our location is a few blocks northwest of Clark and Fullerton. By 1911 the streets here were already fully settled. Up the block on the west side of Orchard Street at #2524 is the combination church-school building of St. Clement Catholic parish.

Today this neighborhood iis generally ranked among the most desirable in the city. And though it’s not visible in the contemporary photo, St. Clement’s magnificent 1918 church is just around the corner on Deming Place.
