I remember getting stitches in my head from a doctor in that tall building. A friend threw a rock at me and it hit me square in the forehead. I lived at 852 Lawrence, I believe. I ran up three flights of stairs with blood running down my face and when my mother saw me she asked what had happened and I told her who did it. She wiped some of the blood off of my face and marched me next door to the girl's mother to let her know what had happened. Her mom took me to the doctor. I think I had about 3 or 4 stitches. I was about 4 and this happened in about 1948. My younger brother's doctor was there as well, Dr. Sager. Probably spelled wrong.

Sorry, didn't leave my name about getting the stitches in my head at the building at Lawrence and Broadway.

Hey, after a head injury, anyone can forget a thing or two.

Chicago is the largest city in Illinois. It is very known in US. Actually, it is the third of the most popular. What makes it special is the high buildings built there and the houses for sale in Chicago Illinois.
