Lawrence El Stop with Aragon Ballroom in Background

An old advertising postcard for Cash-It-Here currency exchange, sometime in the 1940s, with a rare view of the Elevated station.

I LOVE this picture. Where can I find one like it?

It was up for auction this week on eBay. I tried to win it, but somebody beat me to it. It was the first time I've seen this post card, so I think it's pretty rare.

My parents met at the Aragon Ballroom in 1938, so that photo shows the street at it was when they danced in the ballroom. I had the pleasure of dancing there once.

I was researching ballroom etiquette at the Aragon and found the Uptown site.
