Then and Now, Loomis-15th

1952–Loomis Street @ 15th Street, view north
2023–the same location

The legendary Stanley’s Corner tavern dominates the 1952 view of the Loomis-15th intersection.  And here’s yet another local watering hole proudly serving Chicago’s own Fox Deluxe Beer.  Meanwhile, the Chicago Park District has started acquiring properties to build a much-needed park in the neighborhood.

All the buildings in the older photo are gone in 2023.  Jane Addams Park now occupies this site.
