    Route 66 passes through Chicago – Where the Mother Road began

    The exact location of this photo is not known but Joe Sonderman, whose collection it is from, believes this is the triangle formed by Ogden (Route 66) Cermak and Pulaski in Chicago. He noted that the 3 corners building is still there but looking pretty rough. If you know its exact location, please let us know.

    What we spotted in the scene are a bank on the left and also some very interesting signage; the Chevrolet billboard with the catchy slogan, Brilliantly NEW for ’52! featuring a clock and the signs on the 3 Corner Liquor Store.

    The photo is courtesy of Joe Sonderman who has a Route 66 photo collection that we have been posting in a series that you can find here.

    Love TheOldMotor.com site! BTW-we drank a LOT of that RotGut Canadian Ace beer growing up. You could buy it in a glass gallon jug. Imagine the swill at the bottom?
    I notice that even the stop light has craftmanship that is long gone from modern America!
