BON TEMPS ROULEZ

Ben's blog today reminded me that I had been meaning to post the link as well--Life's Archives on Google. It's a trove. I have been looking through the photos of Chicago, in particular this series from 1954 that are of "Chicago Slums" and trying to figure out where they are.

I am guessing most of them are near South and West side., judging by the trains and the proximity to downtown building.

We should try to figure it out

One pic of Studs, none of Nelson Algren.

I am turning this one into a shirt. EVEN MEN!
