Rogers Park Beach, 1957
From the seller's caption: Clad in raincoat, Greg Adler went down to Rogers Park Beach hoping for a break in weather. (Photo By Ralph Walter) The far north Rogers Park neighborhood contains a series of small "street-end" beaches that unlike most Chicago beaches are often separated by private property and therefore, unconnected to each other by public parkland. This accounts for the seemingly large number of beaches in this one neighborhood.
