I call this photo “Wilson Woman”  because I photographed her on Wilson near Broadway in 1975. Other than that, I don’t know much about her. She was in a hurry to get to the “El” but paused long enough for me to take this shot. Notice the Bank of Chicago, the Sheridan Plaza Hotel and the bowling alley in the background. The whole block with the bowling alley which used to be crowded with retail businesses and professional offices is now gone – replaced by a parking lot and a McDonald’s. Someone recently asked me, “How has Uptown changed in 40 years?” One of the most visible changes is a decrease in the commercial density. Many large old buildings have been replaced by smaller buildings, parking lots and vacant lots.
