Simon’s Tavern has been in existence since 1934. It is iconic in the Andersonville neighborhood. Located on North Clark Street, it has endured¬†gentrification. While places have come and gone, this old school hangout remains open. The lighted Swedish flag is proudly represented.

Jewish Graceland Cemetery 1995

One day during the summer of ’95, I accompanied a colleague who worked with me at the Wright College Photo Lab on a photo shoot. He was photographing Jewish Graceland cemetery on North Clark Street. I brought my camera along and took some photos, although I’m not a big cemetery shooter. It was an interesting place, mainly because it was very old and, unfortunately, a lot of the tombstones were either falling apart or vandalized. These are a couple from that roll of film.
