PHOTO: 87th & Cottage Grove 1960

This is how Chatham Village Square used to look over 50 years ago. It had been redeveloped within the last decade where Walgreen's is no longer on this corner but down the street near 86th Street. Of course, this two story building was even ahead of my time.

The Walgreen's I remember from the past was only one story. No one seems certainly what happened to this second story here. They did note a fire here at this shopping center at least in the late 90s before the redevelopment that now includes a military recruiting center, Chase Bank, Target, Nike Outlet, & Game Stop to name a few shops.

I found this photo via the group Children of Chatham. Also here's another vintage pic of Chatham Village Square posted on this blog a year ago.
