Sheridan and Sheffield, Chicago, with View of Mode Theater

A few weeks ago, one of our readers mentioned going to the Mode theatre. Well, here are some fabulous scenes of that part of Sheridan Rd taken in 1937. The first is a captured detail.

From the IDOT collection.

In the second picture from the top you see the back of a double deck bus that is painted in a solid dark color and in other photos from this collection you see double deck buses in a two tone.
Is this dark colored bus a Chicago Motor Coach and the two tone a CTA bus?

I went to the and there were pictures of CMC buses and they were painted in a two tone paint similar to the CTA buses.

My neighborhood 1946-1954. Spent many an hour at the Mode Theater shown and the Sheridan Theater seen above L tracks down Sheridan, Trail's End BBQ, Sheridan Restaurant and the Rexall at Irving...and Wrigley.

Perfect...Lake M 3/4 blocks east. Le Moyne and St. Mary of the Lake grammar and St. George HS 54-57. Not really "Uptown" but "Lakeview" from Addison to Montrose, where Uptown sort of really began and ran to just past Foster at Catalpa or Balmoral, where "Edgewater" began...
