I found this WWII series of photos one day while digging through the Library of Congress archives. They show a group of children from Block 8 Zone 2 donating scrap metal and other materials to the war effort. Block 8 Zone 2 was bordered by Sheridan, Montrose, Broadway, and Sunnyside.
The first image showing the little girl is captioned: "Jaqueline Halloran, 4424 North Sheridan Road, bringing in a load of tin cans for scrap to her block Office of Civilian Defense headquarters, 1942. Her father was a switchman on a railroad in Chicago." None of the other photos are labeled with the names of individuals, just the event.
What I particularly like is the photo showing the names of men who lived in the district who were off fighting in the war. It would be nice to have something like that in Uptown now. I have no idea which of my neighbors are in Iraq.
