Sheridan and Foster, A Century Ago

Hard to believe this is the block on Sheridan between Foster and Winona, in 1909.  Now it's MickeyD's, parking lots, and modern buildings, not to mention some epic traffic.  None of these buildings have survived (although some very similar ones still exist on the east side of the block just south of this one).

But we are tickled that the sentiment on the card could easily be found on Facebook today next to a cell phone camera picture, proving some things never change:  "This is where we live.  Hope you will both visit us very soon."

The card is currently for sale on eBay.
