63rd Street Viaduct

Yep. That was the dividing line. Whites would keep those black people on the other side of Damen. That yellow viaduct looked a lot bigger when I saw it as a kid, in the dead of winter. A few blocks east is Ashland, where I took the other shots. Several of the Bethel church are of a story unto itself. Damen to Western, white flight is a funny and stupid thing. Our old neighborhood, 85th & Pulaski, went from white to black in eight years. And now they are being pushed away from the Mexicans.
