At one time, Uptown had been quite elegant. In the 1920s, many of Chicago’s elite built mansions there and the area was known as an entertainment district. During the 1950s and 1960s, most of the middle class had moved north to Rogers Park or the suburbs. By the 1970s, the neighborhood had changed significantly. Still some of the older residents remained. This Jewish man proudly wore his faith. The collision of cultures in this area never failed to amaze me.
