Marquette Park & The Nabisco Factory

These photos were taken within a quarter mile of each other, on Kedzie Avenue between 65th Street and 71st Street. Marquette Park is the biggest public park on the south side of the city. I took a few photos of the lagoon that ran beneath Kedzie. There is another that is further north. Between the mossy water in a park long left to the local gangs and the Kraft/Nabisco plant, I've also added a few shots of businesses now gone, and other reminders of what this little section of the city has become.
