87th/Cottage Grove - 1960
 The Sixth Ward: PHOTO: 87th & Cottage Grove 1960

I posted the above pic to the link above back in July 2012. Up until about the first decade of the 21st Century Walgreen's was on this corner as you know things have since changed since then. You can read more background of the shopping center we now know as Chatham Village Square in the above link also.

In addition to Walgreen's there is a Chase branch, Nike Outlet, a Target, an AT&T store, and even a military recruiting station. Back in the day say during the course of the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s the shopping center once was home to a Radio Shack, People's Gas, a bowling alley, Sara Lee store, Woolworths, and even a Polk Bros. As happens as time goes on, things must change.
