Vintage Snapshots: Streets Of Chicago In 1981-1982

A few months ago I posted a short gallery of Chicago images dating to the mid-70s. Those got a nice deal of commentary and interest from the CC readership and gave me the impression that a second helping would be eventually necessary. So, for those longing to revisit the old days in Windy City, this gallery is for you.

The images date to 1981 and 1982, and show a good variety of neighborhoods, street views, and cars from the period. They are part of the collection of the University of Illinois and are credited to William C. Brubaker.

The lede picture shows Greystone houses on the west side of South Drexel Blvd.
