I now live at this address where this happened. 5200 N Sheridan rd. Good to see how things were back then 3 years before I was born.

Hi Robert,

Herbert Huncke lived at 5100 N. Sheridan Rd. in the mid 1930's. I did too. The building that stands there now is not the one he lived in. That was torn down in 1974.

Best regards,
Dick
