Philadelphia Church

We've visited the Philadelphia Church in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood before. Just thought I'd share another view of this classic old sign.

The Big Z

The Illinois Railway Museum doesn't often run it's historic, rare, and damned handsome Nebraska Zephyr train set. So I always try and get out to the museum when it's out, just to shoot more photos of it.

This one was shot in front of the Museum's station, with a bonus of some classic L trains from Chicago over there on the left.

I don't think I quite got the bee in focus here. Not surprising. It's hard to shoot a camera while flailing madly.

Kresge's by William 74

Ghost sign in a back alley in Streator, Illinois, that I shot late last year. Kresge's (properly S.S. Kresge's) was the forerunner to KMart, and stopped trading under that name sometime in the 70's. I find it kind of amazing that these things still pop up from time to time.
