I would go to the local church or go to the local library.

You're going to have to track that information down yourself. But you've gotten some very good suggestions from both Diana and Bill. Libraries and historical societies are great places to start. The local church is another really good idea. Another possibility--newspapers. That may take more digging (I'd do the library, Google, and historical society first), but city newspapers have a huge amount of historical information.

Also, that area is in Garfield Park. There's a Garfield Park group on Yahoo. It's at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eastgarfield/?v=1&t=search… They certainly may be able to help.

Since there's a train station nearby, also check with the transit authority.

I did an initial Google search and uncovered some items. More likely, though, find some images that are close to what you want. Then explore the websites of those items to see what else they have.

Hope that helps.

Your best bet may be to try a local Catholic Church which may have an archive or the Chicago Historical Society.
