I photographed this woman in several different locations in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood during the 1970s. She seemed to get around pretty well, despite her handicap and despite high curbs. This was the era before the Americans with Disabilities Act mandated wheelchair ramps on sidewalks. We had a pleasant discussion until we got onto the subject of Chicago politicians at which point she started spitting venom. After taking several shots, I treated her to a Maxi-Dog. It had a calming effect. If I remember correctly, this was at Sheridan and Windsor.
