Still shambling the streets of the city Nelson Algren defined, I am the Monster in a madhouse refined. Burma Shave.

Chicago Blow Pipe Co.
This factory with the missing letters is at the edge of Oak Park. I made a mental note to get off the train at California on the way back, not the best of neighborhoods, because I thought this business, Chicago Blow Pipe, looked neat. I see to have an affinity for Fairfield. Here I am at the Blow Pipe Co. I grew up at the corner of Crystal and California, and if it wasn't for Humboldt Park, Fairfield would be right there. And when I was hit by the car in 1989, I was at the intersection of 55th and Fairfield.
