I’d place the photo at 1924. The bank building just beyond the tracks was completed that year, the Gypsy Lane dine and dance (marquee visible on the left) was closed by 1928, and the theater itself is presenting ‘Shuffle Along’ on stage, which, after its Broadway run, went on a road tour that year.

This theatre would have been very close to the Trianon Ballroom. If anyone has pics of either they’d be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone remember the name of the ice cream parlor on 63rd near Cottage Grove that served giant bowls of ice cream in the 60’s?
