"Gems" to share...article and video.


US ROUTE 20 BYPASS, ELGIN IL:

This turned 50 years old, 11/10/2010. More changes are coming, as noted in this great article about the history of the bypass:
http://couriernews.suntimes.com/news/2245744-418/route-elgin-street-downtown-bypass.html

I've always known it as "the bypass"....



CHICAGO TELEVISION

If you've watched Chicago TV in any of the last few decades, this video is for you:
