Wilson & Racine, 1955

Props to the Uptown Chicago History blog for coming across this photo for sale on eBay showing the SW corner of Wilson & Racine in 1955. Everything in this photo was demolished to make way for Truman College. Check out the current view (minus the construction) below.


  1. Thanks UU, for continuing to post pictures from Uptown's past. I'm always fascinated by the businesses, buildings, and streetscapes that have morphed or vanished completely over the years.

  2. If anyone is interested in purchasing copies of these old pics, the people selling them on ebay are awesome! They deliver quick and produce high quality prints that are suitable for framing. I've purchased quite a few from them. Just follow the link on the Uptown History blog site.
