In Uptown during the mid-1970s, people put graffiti and posters on anything they could. Boarded up storefronts and buildings were a popular target because there was less risk of being chased off. Ironically, this dingy, boarded-up storefront had layers of posters for Chris Cohen who ran successfully for Uptown’s alderman and Mayor Daley’s Salute of Stars event. The rally poster at the top level was for a farm worker who had been staging a hunger strike in front of a Jewel food store.
