Hi. I saw this article about a possible snow front coming in this Friday and ran across a picture taken in 1887 of Shotwell between 22nd and 23rd Street. http://tinyurl.com/4rrezaxI love what you are doing here. Keep up the amazing work!
Hi Llamaloves, happy you're enjoying the blog, thank you for sharing the pic with me. If it does snow you can bet I'll be out there taking a pic.
My family and I grew up in that very shop on 3049 22nd St. and lived in 803 Shotwell St. My Mother ran a small clothing alterations shop there from 1976 till about 2004 until she had to close it because she was diagnosed Cancer, God bless her soul. I have fond memories of that place even though the Old Owner was a jerk and a slimy slumlord. The house was dilapidated and in need of repair back then. I'm happy to see that it looks much better now.
