Fabulous site! Our family moved from South Shore to 109th and Eberhart in 1954. Eventually grew to seven kids in that modest bungalow. We attended Holy Rosary Irish, then Mendel for the boys and Longwood or Mother Seton for the girls. I remember delivering the Southtown Economist and the Chicago American, caddying at Olympia Fields, selling clothes at Style Center on the Avenue, working college summers at US Steel South Works. Playing as kids at Lake Calumet, the abandoned Pullman Works, and Palmer Park. Teen-age activities: hanging out at McDonalds on 103rd, cruising the "Ave," Mendel socials, proms and dances at the girls' Catholic high schools. Favorite food memories: Ken and Dick's Pizza, White Castle, and sweet rolls from Ergo's. Yum!
