Vintage Billboards Of Uptown & Chicago
You've got to watch quick, but from the 1:45 mark in this video till about 2:10 you can see several glimpses of vintage billboards that were once all over Uptown. See if you can spot the old "Lower Wilson" stationhouse that was demolished in the mid 1950s, and then the 4600 block of Broadway with billboards perched atop current-day Iyanze. Next, you'll see Sheridan looking north towards Lawrence. If you've been following all of the vintage photos posted on our Facebook wall, you will notice some of the long demolished buildings. Very cool.
