Christmas Images from Chicago’s Uptown

Santa Clause is Coming to TownI plan to scan a series of images that I took in Uptown on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in 1974 and 1975. I’ll post them on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year. So be sure to check back. Christmas is not only a time of joy, but a time to count our blessings. During the four years I photographed in Uptown, I was repeatedly moved by the sight of people who had so little who give giving what little they had to help neighbors, friends and even strangers. In many ways, the Uptown of the 1970s could be a cruel place. But it could also be a place of incredible kindness. God bless you all. And thank you for your support! I hope you enjoy the images, many of which have not been posted before.
