Here’s a photo request from Andy Romanoff, who has contributed to this blog on many occasions in both posts and comments.
I’ve written stories about Albany Park before. You may have already read some of them: Albany Park Cool, Bob & Ikey’s Wedding, and Ghost Chicago: Looking for Things No Longer Here. I’m writing some new ones and I’m looking for help finding pictures from the day. What I want are pictures from the sixties of Alba Bowl, The Bonfire Restaurant, Napoli Pizza, Cooper & Cooper, pictures of all the motorcycles hanging out on Lawrence west of Kimball, pictures of the crowd hanging out in front of Alba, pictures of people like the Lanutti’s Paul Cohen, Seymour Rottenberg, Harold Stokes, Bill Day, Lois Marks, Pat Firedler, Pat and Connie Binder, Ikey and Bob Tenczar, Schmutz, etc. If those names ring a bell, you are the guys I’m talking to. I’m using pictures of the time to illustrate stories I’m writing on my website here https://medium.com/
