Then and Now, Greenleaf-Sheridan

1936–Greenleaf Avenue @ Sheridan Road, view east

2021–the same location

The photo location is just south of Touhy Avenue.  The open land on the left is Loyola Park.  In 1936 the Park District was beginning to expand the little park and beach.  The work was completed in 1971.

During the 1970s my wife and I lived in the second apartment building down Greenleaf.  We even had a view of the lake from our living room—if you stood in the right place!
