I'd Get By
With a little help from a friend.
Strong and Proud
Though not easily viewed from the street, this painting jumped in front of me in Lawndale. I had to stop. It's a shame it's not credited.
Somebody To Lean On
If you don't need the food kitchen's help perhaps
you can provide for those that do.
Share A Piece Of The Pie
There's a lot of good to Chicago, everyone should
be able to share in it.

Plantation, Train Station and Members of the Great Migration?
I've said it before and it bears repeating, it's amazing what you can see if you get out of your comfort zone and keep your eyes open. I ran across this three panel photo in Englewood. It shows workers on an unnamed plantation, people waiting to board a northbound train in Jacksonville, Florida and youngsters who may very well have been part of the Great Migration north to industrial cities.
The photo on the far right is a popular one, at
least in the African-American community. It's
titled "Negro Boys On Easter Morning" and was taken by Russell Lee in front of the Regal Theatre in Bronzeville in 1941.
Go Ahead, Do Your Thing
So, it's July 4th evening and I'm standing at the corner of Garfield Boulevard and Halsted in Englewood. I'm losing light and trying not to get hit by a bus. On top of that I see four girls walking my way. I know they're not going to stop and they don't surprise me. Then, this one
decides to strike a pose. I like it.
