1955 Mom in front of tavern she lived over.JPG

This picture was taken in 1955. It's a tavern on the southeast side of Chicago. The woman in the picture is my mother as a teenager; she and her parents lived above the tavern for 1 or 2 years.

Nope. No classics in the garage.

As a 9 year old in ‘55, there wasn’t much to get interested in. No video games. Black and white TV if you could afford one. For me it was cars and music.

As for music, I’m still a fan of music from the mid 50’s through the mid 60’s excluding the British influx. (You could actually understand and learn the words in the songs back then.)

As for cars, unlike now, every fall the manufacturers would announce a reveal date for the new models. The dealers would even cover their showroom windows allowing only small peep holes for glimpses of the new models. That added to the interest level.

The old cars have always interested me. I used to be able to look at a part and guess what car it might have come from. I used to know every model in every car line. Even knew their engines. All that’s gone now. Today, the cars all look the same to me.

It was simpler times back then…

That pretty much sums up my life but I would add that I love R&B from the late 40s to early 50s

Hey Golf lover, out of curiosity do you have a more specific address for the bar in the photo? I have a connection to the East side as my Grandfather ran a
Sinclair gas station/ repair garage at 104th & Torrence Ave from the late 30s well into the 1970s. Thanks Tom
